What Is Uveitis?

Uveitis is a condition characterized by inflammation in the eye. Such inflammation may be caused by autoimmune conditions or infections affecting the entire body or isolated to the eye. Uveitis may involve one or both eyes and can affect any part of the eye. Tennessee Retina Serves as a tertiary Referral center for complex cases of uveitis.

"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."
