Riding, how soon after a Uveitis attack?

Last Thursday Lacey had, what we're pretty sure was, an attack of Uveitis.

I'm not really sure when I can ride her again. The vet said to wait until she was out of pain but didn't give me a timeline. The vet did take her off Bute yesterday so I'd assume the vet feels she's not in major pain anymore, but the vet also didn't say "Oh btw, you can ride again" yknow? But I also didn't think to ask. The vet did say to keep putting ointment in her eye, but only once a day.

Her eye is looking back to normal, she's fine without her flymask on, etc. I lunged her yesterday and that was like lighting a rocket. She was canter/galloping around and just being stupid. I finally had to make her stop because she was going to hurt herself going at it like she was.

I also think she had a change of vision from this because she's being ridiculously MORE spooky than she was before. I'm mildly nervous about that just because spooking is my least favorite ever, but I'm going to be tough about it. So I guess side note, I assume just going with it and letting her freak is probably the name of the game until she readjusts herself?

Thoughts? Opinions? :)

I don't know anything about Uvitis, but just wanted to wish Lacey wellness and will be looking to hear how it goes with you two. I dont' like spookiness either. REally don't like it.
I would guess that you would just ignore it, and keep her going forward. Neither punish nor placate. But, a more experience horseperson may have better advice.
