Focal Points 2019 Module: Diagnosis and Management of Anterior Uveitis

Focal Points 2019 Module: Diagnosis and Management of Anterior Uveitis
Among working-age adults in developed nations, uveitis is the fourth leading cause of blindness. Anterior uveitis is a challenging disease entity involving inflammation of the anterior structures of the uvea, including the iris and ciliary body.

To avoid possible permanent vision loss from structural damage, the intraocular inflammation must be controlled promptly, and any associated disorder should be identified and treated.

This Focal Points module reviews the common causes of anterior uveitis and the steps to creating an effective treatment plan. How recent research is shaping future treatment strategies for anterior uveitis is also discussed.

Complete this module to:

  • Summarize techniques for the identification and grading of anterior uveitis.
  • Specify when to perform diagnostic evaluation of patients with anterior uveitis.
  • Recognize common and emerging causes of anterior uveitis.
  • Enumerate areas of research in uveitis and their potential future applications.
  • Discuss how to formulate an appropriate management plan for anterior uveitis.
