Uveitis: The connection is that uveitis is seen with uc and crohn's. This is diagnosed by an ophalmologist and this doctor will need to do a slit lamp exam. Uveitis is a rare manifestation of uc and crohns though.

Medical treatment: Is successful in majority of cases. If you develop complications such as bleeding, perforation, cancer, or intractability despite optimum medical treatment, then surgery might become necessary.
