Uveitis / Intraocular Inflammation

Uveitis occurs in patients with recent surgery, trauma, history of eye infection, and autoimmune disease. Our specialists are comfortable with the local treatment of eye inflammation and work closely with their rheumatology colleagues to ensure complete care for your condition.

Treatment Methods

Our clinics stock the latest therapies for ocular inflammation including sub-tenons kenolog, Ozurdex, Yutiq, Illuvein, and Xipere. We also perform surgical Retisert insertions for patients with severe disease. 

Lab Work

We work in conjunction with your primary care doctor and other specialists to reach an appropriate diagnosis. We also have the capability to request lab work directly and do so as required. Many cases of uveitis require specialty lab-work such as lupus anticoagulant testing, HLA-panel testing, complement factor testing, and rare infectious testing like Bartonella or Lyme disease.

Imaging

Many of the imaging modalities we offer in clinic are integral to assessing ocular inflammation. These include fluorescein angiography and indocyanine green angiography, which highlights the blood vessels in the back of the eye and can unmask disease. We also have access to high definition enhanced depth Heidelberg OCT imaging and OCT-Angiography, which provides a millimeter by millimeter assessment of retinal and choroidal health. 

In other cases we perform B-scan ultrasound which looks for thickening or other abnormalities in the sclera or behind the eye ball. In some cases we can order outpatient CT or MRI scans, if we believe the disease may be impact the brain or optic nerves.
