Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I can help you tonight.
It sounds like your wife has anterior uveitis. There are many causes for this condition and, if she has had multiple episodes or if the uveitis has some specific findings, a systemic workup is indicated. Many times a cause is not found and the condition is treated symptomatically. The treatment you have outlined is the correct one for anterior uveitis.
Are there any specific questions I can answer for you concerning your wife's specific treatment, workup or condition?
I see you are not at your computer. We can continue to address your question using the Q&A system.
Is her uveitis also involving the back of her eye (vitreous), or is it just in the front (anterior chamber)?
Both. Depends on how much reading, light she is exposed to.
