In this 1-Minute video, Dr. Debra Goldstein offers advice on how to evaluate vision loss in patients with uveitis. She recommends taking detailed history because there may be useful clues. For instance, blurry morning vision that clears up during the day may indicate edema. Frosty morning vision is often related to corneal edema, whereas a central blur that fluctuates during the day could mean macular edema. She cautions that dim vision or visual field loss are often unrelated to cataracts.
