Researchers at the SOVS and CFEH have had a recent article “Atypical Features of Fuch’s Uveitis Syndrome” published ahead of print in Optometry and Vision Science, the official journal of the American Academy of Optometry. The lead author, Jack Phu, is currently doing his PhD on the retinal disease, glaucoma with Prof Michael Kalloniatis at the Centre for Eye Health and Dr Sieu Khuu at SOVS. Their interests in Fuchs uveitis syndrome stems from its long term sequelae in the eye including secondary open-angle glaucoma. The paper presents three atypical cases of Fuchs uveitis syndrome demonstrating the clinical spectrum of the disease and management.  The article Phu J; Trinh W.
