Treatment of Uveitis
The treatment approach to uveitis depends on the extent of inflammation. Uveitis may have a short (acute) or prolonged (chronic) course and treatment is tailored to each individual. Treatment may range from steroids (administered as eye drops, local injections, pills or infusions) to complex immunosuppressive medications. Depending on the underlying cause of uveitis, we may involve an infectious disease specialist, rheumatologist or neurologist to provide you with the best care possible.
In cases of chronic uveitis, long-term therapy is often needed
to improve vision and maintain disease-free remission.
"What brought me to Dr. Reichstein was two detached retinas, multiple holes and tears in my retinas. From the moment he came into the room he was very calm, kind, gentle and he listened to my symptoms. He, also, has an awesome sense of humor. By far, the best Doctor I have ever been to."
