Recovering from uveitis
NHS ChoicesMedical Reference
Uveitis should improve within two to three weeks of treatment.
Traumatic uveitis (injury to the eye) usually goes away within a week. The sooner treatment is started, the quicker the recovery. The length of treatment will depend on the severity of the condition and how the eye responds to treatment.
Follow-up appointments with an ophthalmologist (eye disease specialist) are essential.
If your uveitis is associated with a disease, it may recur. If symptoms of a new episode are recognised quickly, prompt treatment will usually prevent the attack becoming severe.
