Description

Significant developments for improving uveitis management are under way; these developments will address the drawbacks of current therapy side effects, improve tolerance to therapy, improve access to care, and improve patient outcomes. Through case illustrations of a variety of patients with chronic posterior uveitis, ophthalmologists can learn how leading experts from Europe, the United States, and India diagnose and treat these patients today. Additionally, ophthalmologists will learn how potential future therapies may help overcome some of the current challenges for chronic management of posterior noninfectious uveitis.
