Uveitis and Ocular Immunology
The Uveitis and Ocular Immunology Service is involved with inflammation or swelling of the eye. This may present as eye redness or pain especially when outdoors, severe blurring of vision, or seeing floating objects among others. There is a high association of uveitis with systemic disorders, particularly autoimmune diseases like lupus and inflammatory conditions like arthritis. As such, uveitis experts are trained not only to focus on the ophthalmologic history and physical examination but, just as equally important, to seek out extraocular manifestations and presentations.
There are just a handful of Uveitis specialists in the Philippines who are members of both the Philippine Ocular Inflammation Society ( POIS ) and International Ocular Inflammation Society ( IOIS ). The Department of Ophthalmology of Asian Hospital and Medical Center is truly blessed to have 3 among its staff.
