    Pediatric Ophth/Strabismus

    In this video presentation from the 2013 Pediatric Ophthalmology Subspecialty Day, Michael Repka discusses the current state of juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA), the most common cause of noninfectious uveitis among children. He described the various classifications and onset of JIA and the risk factors, prevalence, and presentation of JIA-assocated uveitis. He concludes with the role of the ophthalmologist: screening, exam frequency, uveitis status, and treatment.
