Hello
Welcome to health care magic.

I reviewed your history.
It seems like your mother is having scleritis.
This is inflammation of the sckera.
The treatment of the condition is by use of steroids and antiinflammatory drugs.
However if this is recurrent this requires evaluation to rule out systemic diseases and autoimmune diseases.

Thank you
