Dear Mr XXXXXXX

Thanks for the query.

Your wife might be having either episcleritis or scleritis.
I have a few questions. Is there any pain over the area of redness? Is there any watering or discharge? Is her vision okay?
Please reply to my queries. I will wait for your reply.

Best regards,
Dr.Mihir Shah
