Does retinal vasculitis cause pain? Last year an optholomalogist said my retina in both eyes are swelling but he did not seem alarm. Every year they are more swollen. Sometime I have eye pain but not a lot. However I have just been diagnosed wothBehcets after atypical meningitis. I have had this disease since six and it has affected every organ of my body from heart to lungs to brain to GI. I am worried about my eyes but don't have a lot of pain -- just blurred vision off and on.
