is inflammation of uvea. The causes for uveitis are very wide and include bacterial infections, viral infections, fungal infections, parasitic infections, allergy
, autoimmune diseases, injury, systemic diseases like diabetes mellitus
and so many. Even after extensive investigations to find out the underlying cause 30% of them will not show any underlying cause and are termed as idiopathic in cause.
The treatment is mainly by using steroids
and immunosuppressive drugs in cases not responding to steroids.
Since she has taken treatment with steroids, I can now advice her to undergo investigations to find out the cause for uveitis. If any underlying cause is found out the treatment is basically by treatment of the underlying cause.
She can take second opinion
from eye doctor and undergo investigations for complete evaluation and treatment.
