Abstract

Despite its relative rarity, uveitis is the third leading cause of preventable blindness worldwide. Glaucoma associated with uveitis is one of the most serious complications of intraocular inflammation. We review in detail the epidemiology and pathogenesis of uveitic glaucoma and the safety and efficacy of the current medical and surgical treatment modalities.
