Abstract

Raised intraocular pressure in uveitis, either due to the disease itself or secondary to treatment with steroids, is one of the most common causes of secondary glaucoma in clinical practice. There are currently no standardized criteria for the diagnosis nor guidelines for the management of raised intraocular pressure in uveitis. Intraocular pressure elevation may be due to any combination of several mechanisms and, as a result, the prognosis differs from primary glaucomas. In addition, the management of ongoing inflammation without elevating the intraocular pressure remains a challenge. Ideally, new anti-inflammatory agents should have better anti-inflammatory properties with safer intraocular pressure profiles, while sustained release medications to lower intraocular pressure would improve patient compliance.
