hi, I'm Shelley. I had cataract surgery about 4 years ago when my Uveitis started putting too much pressure on my eyes? I've been told that it is likely I have an underlying autoimmune disorder that lead to my Uveitis. Have any of you been diagnosed with an. autoimmune disorder?

      Yes. Was diagnosed with uveitis by my eye doctor shortly after getting ankylosing spondylitis diagnosis. Both docs said they are linked. My eye doc has been trying to figure out what’s been going on with my eyes for the last few years since symptoms haven’t really been associated with my other eye issues and progressively gets worse every year and random eye issues. Eye doc was like ohhh yes that makes so much sense now that you’ve actually been diagnosed with autoimmune rather than just usually have overall inflammation from unknown cause. Since actually knowing what we’re treating now, been able to find things that help more quickly.

      Yes! They diagnosed my Uveitis first, and I had a lot of bodily pains my whole life, so it explained the following autoimmune diagnoses.

      My uveitis that I've had 12 times helped to diagnose my Ankylosing Spondylitis.

      Hi! Yes I’ve been diagnosed with an autoimmune condition that also affects the eyes and causes uveitis due to the inflammation.
