Abstract

Visual symptoms due to uveitis involve a wide range of possible causes. Familiarity with its clinical manifestations, referral indications and treatment strategies is required for the optimal use of current therapeutic options. Uveitis can be caused by infectious and non-infectious factors, resulting in differing prognoses and treatments. The treatment of chronic, non-infectious uveitis has profoundly changed in the last years due to the advent of biological therapies. In severe uveitis, treatment of the underlying cause is required for the prevention of the loss of vision; multidisciplinary team collaboration is therefore important.
