well you are in VERY good hands- Cincinnati Eye Institute is a great place to be treated!
AS you are by now aware- uveitis is a relentless condition and very difficult to treat if the underlying cause is never determined. I am quite confident that you have had a million test and work ups. If not- you should definitely been seen by an infectious disease doctor and a rheumatologist.
Many patients have had success with immunosupression but this only an option id your uveitis is not of an infectious etiology. If the use of the chronic eye drops have become an issue- discuss getting a steroid depot implanted with your physician. Again, this is only an option in some patients.
You can also contact the National Eye Institute (division of National Institute of health). They have a strong Uveitis department and always conducting research in the field of uveitis. They may be able to review your case.
Best of Luck!
