Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Though the xray chest is normal,the cause of Uveitis may be due to extra pulmonary(apart from lungs) TB.
TB will be confirmed by blood tests like PCR.
I saw many patients who were cured after TB treatment.
If you come back with the latest test reports,i will clarify further
