Twenty-one people developed anterior uveitis and two developed Multiple Evanescent White Dot Syndrome (MEWDS).
The Pfizer coronavirus vaccine may be linked to a form of eye inflammation called uveitis, according to a multicenter Israeli study led by Prof. Zohar Habot-Wilner from Tel Aviv’s Sourasky Medical Center.
The research was conducted at Rambam Health Care Campus, Galilee Medical Center, Shaare Zedek Medical Center, Sheba Medical Center in Tel Hashomer, Kaplan Medical Center and Sourasky. It was accepted for publication by the peer-reviewed ophthalmology journal Retina.
Habot-Wilner, head of the Uveitis Service at the hospital, found that 21 people (23 eyes) who had received two shots of the Pfizer vaccine developed uveitis within one to 14 days after receiving their first shot or within one day to one month after the second.
Twenty-one people developed anterior uveitis, and two developed Multiple Evanescent White Dot Syndrome (MEWDS).
“All the patients in the study met the World Health Organization and Naranjo criteria linking the onset of uveitis to the vaccination,” Habot-Wilner said. “This time frame is consistent with other reports of uveitis following various vaccines.”
She said that any patients that had other systemic diseases that could have been related to uveitis were under control before vaccination. In addition, none of the patients had any changes in their systemic treatments for at least six months before getting the shots.
Eight of the patients had a prior history of uveitis, but no less than one to 15 years prior.
Specifically, most cases were mild – only three were severe – and all anterior uveitis cases were able to be treated by topical corticosteroids and eye drops for pupil dilation. MEWDS cases, as accepted, were not addressed.
“Only one case worsened after receiving the second dose,” according to Habot-Wilner, but she said that with appropriate treatment the disease also resolved for that individual.
“An examination at the end of the follow-up period found that in all eyes visual acuity improved and disease was completely resolved,” she said.
“The conclusion is that I do recommend getting vaccinated for people with or without a history of uveitis,” Habot-Wilner stressed. But she said that if people do experience a uveitis attack after taking the vaccine, they should get a good ocular examination and be treated appropriately. And, if the uveitis occurs after the first dose, they should still get the second one.
Habot-Wilner stressed that developing uveitis from vaccination in general is “quite rare,” but that the eye inflammation has been associated with other vaccines.
“It is very uncommon, but if you do feel something is wrong with your eyes, if you have pain, redness or vision deterioration,” she said, “please go and visit your eye doctor.”

For those who have not had the pleasure, anterior uveitis (f/k/a iritis) can be very painful and annoying. Not something you would want to risk flaring up or becoming chronic if it could be avoided.

had lunch with a friend today and her daughter, 31 and vaxed, suddenly got major eye irritation. I’m guessing it could be this.
Obviously those people had pre-existing conditions.

Hundred of millions of people vaccinated with the trump vaccine, 21 people maybe got an eye condition because of it, of which 8 already had it before the vaccine, and none-the-less they all recovered - sounds like time to PANIC!!!.
So basically you have a better chance of being struck by lightning than this happening.

All you have to do is look at the VAERS reporting that is probably ten times worse than what is reported to see the damage the experimental shots are doing.
CDC: 11,940 DEAD 618,648 Injuries and 1,175 Unborn Babies DEAD Following COVID-19 Shots
No problem unless you’re one of those who now has a pacemaker, Parkinson’s, Shingles, migraines, blood clots, etc. All you have to do is read the reporting online or ask people around you. I talked to a woman who now has daily migraines after getting the guinea pig shots. My hairdresser told me that one of her friends who works in the medical field now has to have a pacemaker in his mid-30’s after getting the shots. He had no heart or health issues beforehand.
You’re free to believe it or not. Time will prove whose right and whose wrong. Pray you’re on the side that did the right thing. If not, figure out how to get the shots out of your body.
You don’t need your eyesight as long as you got the jab.

>>probably ten times worse than what is reported
Ah yes, the ‘probably’ unreported millions of people who are dying from the shot and nobody bothered to report.
Maybe covid deaths are ‘probably 500 times worse than reported’...see how easy that is to make stuff up?
My mom was losing her eyesight after the 2nd Pfizer jab. Turned out to be a stroke in the back of her head. May she RIP.

Many of these comments aren’t looking positive for the experimental CCP/Fauci shots.
I say do whatever one thinks is right for them, however, leave me the hell alone. Time will tell whose right and whose wrong. For those who volunteered to be part of a medical experiment; one which they have no recourse over, that’s fine. If it’s proven that you made a bad choice, start figuring out how to get the shots out of your body once the shots have invaded every organ. No problem. As they say, to each his or her own.
