What is Episcleritis? What is the treatment for Episcleritis?

 

Episcleritis is an inflammatory response in the episleral region of the eye. This is often recurrent and is associated with systemic disease such as rosacea, collagen vascular diseases, herpes virus or zoster virus.

This condition will resolve with no treatment however artificial tears, cold compresses, topical NSAIDS or mild topical steroid may be beneficial.
