Uveitis Treatments


Talk with your doctor about the best treatment plan for you. Treatment will depend on your age, the cause, severity, and other factors. Treatment options include the following:


Medicines will be used to reduce inflammation and prevent damage. Medicine may be in the form of eye drops, pills, or injections into the eye, such as:

  • Drugs that help reduce sensitivity to light and other complications
  • Topical corticosteroids to help reduce inflammation—such as prednisolone acetate, fluorometholone acetate, dexamethasone, fluorometholone, prednisolone sodium phosphate, rimexolone (Vexol), or loteprednol (Lotemax)
  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents (NSAIDs) to help reduce inflammation
  • Antibiotics to treat bacterial infection
  • Antivirals to treat viral infection
  • Dilating drops (cycloplegics) to reduce pain and discomfort


In some cases, surgery or a special eye implant may be needed.

It is important to follow up with your doctor and watch for signs of recurrence.
