Causes of Uveitis

Causes of Uveitis

About 40% of uveitis cases may not have an underlying case (idiopathic). Others may be related to specific genes (HLA-B27, HLA-A29). Some forms of uveitis are associated with systemic autoimmune disease (sarcoidosis, multiple sclerosis, Behçet’s disease among others) while others are associated with systemic infections (tuberculosis, syphilis, lyme disease among others). As part of your evaluation for uveitis we will obtain appropriate lab work and imaging to help better guide therapy.

"I'm impressed with the genuine concern these medical professionals have had for me. I just had one of the best experiences that I have ever had regarding patient education. Dr. Awh took lots of time and answered all my questions. I've been afraid, confused and even depressed about my eye. Dr. Awh was reassuring and straight forward which I very much appreciate. The staff at TN Retina are cheerful and caring too. Very comforting to see their smiles... I certainly do recommend Tennessee Retina.. "
