In brief: Lengthy

JRA uveitis is a serious disease.
It unfortunately does not always cause too many symptoms but the inflammation is deep seated and may cause severe, vision threatening problems. It requires constant attention and regular use of anti-inflammatory medication. Such a case should be followed by a pediatric ophthalmologist along with a pediatric rheumatologist.

In brief: JRA

It depends on the type of jra.
Often, folks with jra will have repeated bouts of uveitis. This may lead to other eye problems, such as glaucoma, cataracts, and macular edema. See you local ophthalmologist on a regular basis for ongoing eyecare.
