Prognosis of Uveitis

Reading time: 2 min

Uveitis is neither a hereditary or degenerative disease and so it is not progressive. It certainly has an impact on patient quality of life, especially in the case of long-term treatments, but in principle it is a disease that can be controlled and patients with uveitis will not go blind.

Not only is diagnosis made increasingly sooner, the disease is also dealt with using a much more multidisciplinary approach. In addition, there are new medicines available for dealing with immune-mediated uveitis that now act more quickly and therefore offer a better visual prognosis.
