Scleritis , Uveitis
Dr. Debra Goldstein shares tips for recognizing, treating and managing scleritis. She emphasizes that scleritis is not merely a more severe case of episcleritis. While neosynephrine is useful to visualize the deeper inflammation and scleral vessels, it will not blanch everything that is not scleritis. Since scleritis can last for months or years, these patients often require systemic immunomodulatory therapy.
