Very sorry to hear about that .

If steroids have failed to improve the inflammation then next option is plasma exchange. Its a procedure thats carried out in multiple sessions where patient's own plasma ( part of blood) is exchanged with FFPs or new plasma thus removing the factors causing his eye inflammation.

I hope your son improves with PEX .

Let me know if you have any further queries
