Summary
Ocular hypertension is common in patients with uveitis. Treatment can be complex and challenging, but the approach can be simplified by elucidating which of the four basic mechanisms of IOP elevation are responsible for producing the ocular hypertension. These mechanisms include IOHS, uveitic angle closure, corticosteroid-induced ocular hypertension/glaucoma, and chronic mixed mechanism ocular hypertension/glaucoma. Once the underlying mechanisms responsible for producing ocular hypertension/glaucoma are understood, medical and surgical treatment should then be customized to the individual patient. This module distinguishes and describes the four principal mechanisms for elevated IOP in patients with uveitis; lists the common causes of IOHS; describes the two mechanisms that produce acute uveitic angle-closure glaucoma; and will help you develop a rational treatment plan. Eight clinical images and four graphs are included
