Answer

Transient and mild conjunctivitis is usually not treated. Mydriatics and cycloplegics (eg, atropine) with topical corticosteroids may be administered in patients with acute anterior uveitis. Patients with recurrent ocular involvement may require systemic corticosteroid therapy and immunomodulators to preserve vision and prevent ocular morbidity. [99]
