6 week eye appointment

Another uneventful visit to the uveitis specialist, Dr. Foster in Cambridge. Jacob's eyes still remain inflammation free. Jacob has been on the combination of 17.5 mgs, Methotrexate, (chemotherapy), and 20 mgs Humira, which is a bi-weekly injection. This combination has kept him cell free for an entire year now!!

His vision remains stable and his eye pressures are within a normal range. The pressure readings today were 15 and 16. Actually down from 24, last visit!! His cataract, which is still very small, is stable.

All in all a great visit today. Another 6 weeks for a follow-up. One year and counting to begin the weaning of meds!
