A familiarity with steroid-induced glaucoma or ocular hypertension is essential to the care of a uveitic patient. Gonioscopy is required to define the open- or closedangle mechanism for elevated IOP. Careful charting will help the clinician to determine if the increase in IOP relates to the inflammation or the steroid therapy. Steroid-sparing therapy or the avoidance of steroids in affected or at-risk patients can help avoid or treat a steroid response. Comanagement with a rheumatologist or uveitis specialist is likely required (Figure 2).
