dc.description.abstractEquine recurrent uveitis is a devastating disease of the equine eye. In this disease repeated episodes of uveitis are extremely painful and can eventually lead to blindness in the horse. There are many medical and surgical options available for alleviating inflammation and recurrent episodes of uveitis. This paper will examine the case study of a horse with equine recurrent uveitis treated first with medical management and later with a suprachoroidal Cyclosporine A implant. The implants were effective in controlling inflammation OD but were unsuccessful OS and the patient suffered decreased vision after surgery. In the context of the case, this paper will also include a review of uveitis and its many etiologies and treatment options.en_US
