Inflammation (Uveitis)

Inflammation of the eye, also known as uveitis, can occur either at the front of the eye (anterior uveitis) or can sometimes involve the back of the eye (posterior uveitis) causing floaters and blurred vision. Anterior uveitis can often be treated with eye drops alone whereas posterior uveitis may require various treatment modalities depending on the severity of the inflammation which can vary from intravitreal injections of steroids to oral Prednisolone with or without other immune modulating therapies with careful monitoring. Cataracts can commonly occur in uveitis and require careful control of inflammation both before and after surgery for the best visual results.
