Brief History

The Uvea department examines an average of 3000 cases per year of which more than 1000 are new cases. It is noteworthy to mention that the Uvea department at Sankara Nethralaya is the primary referral center for uveitis patients in India and neighbouring countries. This department is actively involved in research and is credited with the largest number of peer reviewed publications in Sankara Nethralaya.

Uveal tract is the vascular middle coat of the eye ball. Inflammation of the uveal tract is called uveitis. Uveitis,usually occurs if there is associated systemic disease in the patient either an autoimmune disease or an infectious disease, hence the specialists at the Uveitis department treat their patients in close coordination with other specialists in various branches of medicine such as rheumatologists, chest physicians, infectious disease specialists, internists etc. The department is headed by Dr. Jyotirmay Biswas, a pioneer in this field who is ably assisted by 10 consultants well trained in this specialty.

Medical management of patients with uveitis involves continuous monitoring/control of their ocular inflammation which may require systemic treatment with drugs such as steroids and immunosuppressives. It also needs close monitoring of the systemic disease in conjunction with the concerned specialists.

Facilities

Laboratory facilities

SankaraNethralaya’s uveitis department is well supported by state of the art laboratory, pathology, microbiology, molecular biology, biochemistry and genetics departments. Facilities for intraocular biopsy are also available.

The department has facilities to perform complicated cataract and complex vitreo-retinal surgeries that may be needed for some patients with uveitis.

The department is experienced in handling complicated and refractory cases where immunosuppressive drugs and biologics are given under intensive monitoring.

Major Conferences/ Seminars / Events

Uvea department of SankaraNetharlaya had organized the International Uveitis Study Group Meeting (IUSG) in February 2000 at Chennai. Experts in the field of Uveitis from India and 14 other countries participated in this most prestigious meet to discuss the latest approaches in the diagnosis of Uveitis. The IUSG meeting is conducted annually to provide guidelines for the classification, diagnosis and treatment of Uveitis entities and this was the first time that the IUSG meeting was held in India.

There have been multiple CME programmes and national conferences on uveitis organized by SankaraNethralaya in Chennai and around. Consultants from its Uvea department have also been part of many conferences as main speakers/faculty.

Training and courses offered

Fellowship programme

The Department of uveitis offers an 18-month fellowship programme which encompasses a basic training in other specialties’ in general ophthalmology including cataracts and complete training in the management of patients with uveitis.
