Uveitis is another complication of herpes infections that may present after the initial visit. Ensure that the patient is taking the maximum oral antiviral therapy with good compliance. If uveitis appears, there can be a rapid development of inflammation that requires aggressive treatment. A loading dose of topical Pred Forte (prednisolone acetate 1%, Allergan) given every 15 minutes for a few hours, followed by a week of hourly dosing, is a reasonable start. Cycloplegia with a long-acting agent, such as homatropine 5%, is necessary. As with potential corneal scarring, seek subspecialty consultation if herpes associated uveitis is slow to resolve.
