Abstract

In recent years the appraisal of (posterior) uveitis has substantially improved. Classical investigational modalities such as fluorescein angiography (FA) and echography have been completed by an array of new preceise and complementary investigational methods. Laser flare photometry (LFP) together with imaging methods including indocyanine green angiography (ICGA), optical coherence tomography (OCT), ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM), fundus autofluorescence (FAF) together with functional tests such as microperimetry and computerized visual testing allow us to exactly determine the level of inflammation as well as morphological and functional involvement. This new comprehensive approach brought enhanced diagnostic possibilities as well as precise monitoring of disease evolution and impact of treatment.
