Shreee Ram Hospital



Shree Ram Hospital and Eye Care Centre is dedicated to providing comprehensive services for the diagnosis and treatment of uveitis, a complex and potentially sight-threatening condition involving inflammation of the uvea, the middle layer of the eye. Uveitis can affect various parts of the eye, including the iris, ciliary body, and choroid, and it can be caused by a wide range of factors, including infections, autoimmune disorders, and systemic diseases.

Our experienced team of ophthalmologists and uveitis specialists at Shree Ram Hospital utilizes advanced diagnostic techniques and state-of-the-art imaging technologies to accurately diagnose uveitis and determine the underlying cause of inflammation. Our comprehensive eye examinations may include slit-lamp biomicroscopy, fundus photography, optical coherence tomography (OCT), and laboratory testing to assess the extent of uveitis and identify any associated systemic conditions or underlying triggers.

Treatment for uveitis aims to reduce inflammation, alleviate symptoms, and prevent complications such as vision loss and ocular damage. At Shree Ram Hospital, we offer a range of treatment options for uveitis, including:

  1. Topical Steroid Eye Drops: Corticosteroid eye drops are commonly prescribed to reduce inflammation and alleviate symptoms such as eye pain, redness, and light sensitivity associated with anterior uveitis, which affects the front portion of the eye.
  2. Oral Corticosteroids: In cases of moderate to severe uveitis or posterior uveitis, which affects the back portion of the eye, oral corticosteroids may be prescribed to suppress inflammation and prevent recurrence of uveitic episodes.
  3. Immunomodulatory Therapy: Immunosuppressive medications, such as methotrexate, cyclosporine, or azathioprine, may be used in combination with corticosteroids to manage chronic or recurrent uveitis and reduce the need for long-term steroid therapy.
  4. Biologic Agents: Biologic therapies, such as tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors or interleukin (IL) inhibitors, may be recommended for refractory cases of uveitis that do not respond to conventional treatments, particularly in patients with autoimmune or inflammatory conditions.
  5. Localized Treatments: In certain cases of uveitis, localized treatments such as periocular or intravitreal injections of corticosteroids or immunomodulatory agents may be administered to target inflammation and minimize systemic side effects.

At Shree Ram Hospital, we understand the impact that uveitis can have on vision and quality of life, and we are committed to providing compassionate care and support to our patients throughout their treatment journey.
