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.
"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.. "
