Abstract

Uveitis is a potentially visually threatening disease accounting for 10% of vision loss in the developed world.1 The most common cause of vision loss in patients with uveitis has been shown to be macular edema (ME). 1 The early detection and management of ME is critical to preserve vision in these patients. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a valuable tool in the management of many ocular diseases. The use of OCT has revolutionized the diagnosis and management of macular edema from a wide variety of ophthalmological diseases, including uveitis.2 In this review, we evaluate the role of OCT in the diagnosis and management of uveitic macular edema.
