Hi Everyone, my 10 year old daughter has JIA associated chronic bilateral anterior uveitis. She lost the sight in her right eye due to late diagnosis and then failure by her then specialist to treat this disease aggressively and just use steroid drops. Needless to say I found another 'proper' uveitis specialist to save her left eye who started her on mtx and ciclosporin. This brought the flare and cells down from 4 (the worst) to 2, but then stopped working. She's now on 20mg of mtx and tacrolimus which isn't the miracle we were hoping for. If this doesn't work she'll be moved on to a biologic called Humira. This can potentially be such a destructive disease but it helps to know there are other Mums out there who know what my daughter and I are going through.
Wishing you all quiet eyes
