Hello, folks. Eye changes can appear in children with juvenile idiopathic arthritis. This can be caused by to reasons. The first one is the disease itself. Other possible cause is side effect of medications. The most common problem is uveitis. Uveitis is the inflammation of uvea. Uvea is the middle layer of eye bulb. If these changes are not treated on time, some complications will appear. Vision problems, glaucoma, cataracts or even blindness are possible. I hope your friends’ kid will be all right. Bye!
