Treating Infectious & Noninfectious Uveitis
Uveitis can happen due to infectious (bacterial, fungal, protozoa, and viral) or noninfectious causes.
- Infectious Uveitis is caused by an infection that has spread to your eyes from another part of your body. It is important to diagnose and treat the infection quickly.
- Noninfectious Uveitis can result from a variety of conditions like autoimmune diseases, allergies, trauma, or radiation. To reduce inflammation and help prevent vision loss, it is important to identify and treat the underlying cause.
Dr. Brown has the expertise and experience to diagnose both types of uveitis accurately, and to provide the unique treatment each type requires. In both cases, uveitis can affect one of three areas of the eye, resulting in four categories: anterior, intermediate, posterior, and panuveitis which involves all areas of the eye.
At Infinity Retina, we understand how frightening it can be to experience sudden vision changes or eye pain. Dr. Brown and her team are here to provide you with the best possible care and treatment for your uveitis.
