• Visual symptoms due to uveitis involve a wide range of possible causes. • Familiarity with its clinical manifestations, referral indications and treatment strategies is required for the optimal use of current therapeutic options. • Uveitis can be caused by infectious and non-infectious factors, resulting in differing prognoses and treatments. • The treatment of chronic, non-infectious uveitis has profoundly changed in the last years due to the advent of biological therapies. • In severe uveitis, treatment of the underlying cause is required for the prevention of the loss of vision; multidisciplinary team collaboration is therefore important.
