Hi. I'm Dr. Rick and I have two decades of ophthalmology and retina surgery experience. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Expert:  Dr. Rick replied 9 months ago.

I am a retina specialist.

Is an general ophthalmologist (Eye MD) managing your eye issues or are you seeing an optometrist?
Do you mean uveitis secondary to your systemic iritis?

If so, do you know if your ocular inflammation is in the front only of your eye, the back only or both the front and back (panuveitis)?

Also, what damage has been done by this ongoing inflammation?
