Here’s how our experts treat Uveitis

Treating Uveitis is generally a stress-free procedure. However, some cases may need surgery.

Eye Drops

Prescription eye drops are commonly used for treatment.


Steroids may be prescribed orally as medication.


Steroids can also be administered through injections in or around the eye.


Surgery may be recommended to implant a device called an implant, providing a controlled release of steroids over time.


Uveitis can be caused by infection, injury, or autoimmune/inflammatory diseases. Sometimes, the cause is unknown. It’s a serious condition that can result in permanent vision loss. Getting diagnosed and treated early is crucial to avoid complications and protect your vision.

Processed and fried foods can worsen inflammation. Diets with lots of refined sugars may also increase inflammation and make uveitis symptoms worse.
