uveitis, pars planitis---can both lead to glaucoma and cataracts--if not treated early and properly.

Do you have PP? I was diagnosed 3 years ago with it. Aggrevating disease. There is an online support group that can be joined for uveitis sufferers that is wonderful. It can be found at [url="http://www.uveitis.org"]www.uveitis.org[/url]
