Infectious Uveitis seminar - 13 October 2021
This seminar will explore clinical practice and research in Infectious Uveitis. In this field making a rapid, accurate diagnosis is essential to starting specific treatment and making the difference between good outcome or not. Experienced expert speakers will discuss intra-ocular pathogens encountered in the UK and globally, presenting clinical aspects and informative research. Viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites are all covered, including when and where to seek interdisciplinary working. Topically, the ocular effects of COVID-19 are included, as will a survey of the link between infection and autoimmunity with respect to the eye. The Infectious Uveitis seminar is aimed at any ophthalmologist who sees uveitis patients; in uveitis clinics, in medical retina clinics, in emergency or general ophthalmic care. Ophthalmologists in training, consultant and SAS ophthalmologists are all welcome, as well as delegates from overseas.
