    My sympathies to you! I’ve had uveitis twice, the first time in 2007 I was treated with prednisone, pred forte, and the drugs mentioned above. The last time I had it was 2010 I think, and I was treated with durezol. Magic. No prednisone, and a much quicker recovery. Good luck!

    I’ve had Uveitis for 24 years now — and for the first 21 years I was treated with Tobrex and Tobradex as well. They are bother prednisone based and after so many years on this — between drops, pills and injections into my eyes — it builds up in my system – then it finally crashed my immune system !!
    Then you have issues defending off infections and I now am on a form of chemo therapy for 26 months now, and completely removed from prednisone — to keep the white cells from attacking my eyes — but the side effects are horrible !! I was given other drug options – but they were as – or more toxic — and the side effects are brutal — for me !!
    But – one should be careful with prednisone — it should be used for SHORT time frames – not years in consistently. But — if you take nothing – uveitis will eventually lead to blindness !!!
    Pick your poison !!!!
