Looking for a uveitis specialist in Eugene, OR

Post by Heyer » Sat Jan 05, 2008 4:57 pm

My son has been a uveitis patient of Dr. Foster for many years. His uveitis is now controlled, but he is going to school at the University of Oregon in Eugene, and I'd like to know of a local opthalmologist that he could see quickly if need be. I know there are uveitis specialists in Portland at the Oregon Health and Science University, but can anyone recommend someone in Eugene?

Sorry but I know of no uveitis specialists outside of California, Utah or Back east and I live in the Seattle Tacoma Area. from member experience with specialsts in SEattel and Oregon I cannot recommend anyone in our states at this time. SOME people in oregon are traveling to see DR Foster in Boston, MA for example to get their care using other than corticosteroids.

In the near future, DR Van Gelder will be in the Seattle area coming from St Louis, MO and Washington University, St Louis.

Wish you the very best,
Mike
