Answer

Patients should undergo a room-light scleral examination, a slit-lamp evaluation, and general eye examination at every follow-up visit.

Carefully monitor medication type, dose, and adverse effects. In case of therapeutic failure, change the medication type.

Consultation with a rheumatologist for associated systemic disease and/or immunomodulatory therapy follow-up care is recommended.
