HOW CAN WE HELP YOU? Call 1-800-TRY-CHOP
The Uveitis Coordinated Care Clinic sees patients on the first Tuesday of the month in the mornings. You and your child can expect to be at the Hospital for approximately two hours or longer, depending on your child’s needs.
If your child is referred outside of CHOP for a uveitis evaluation, please ask the eye doctor to complete the Uveitis Assessment Form and bring it with you to your child’s appointment at CHOP. You can also upload it using MyCHOP or fax it to 215-590-4750.
Please make sure you bring the following to your first appointment:
We encourage you to arrive 30 minutes prior to your child’s scheduled appointment so we can review all of your paperwork and ask any additional questions. Register your child with our staff at the front desk.
If you arrive late, you risk being seen later or having your appointment rescheduled. Please call us at 215-590-5761 if you are running late. If you need to cancel your appointment, please give us 72 hours’ notice. Another family will be grateful for your time.

During the appointment, your child may undergo a variety of tests and exams to monitor for inflammation and vision loss.
These tests may include:
We encourage you to ask any questions you have about your child’s condition or treatment plans, and you can always contact our team after your visit if you have follow-up questions.
After your child’s initial visit, you will receive a visit summary report detailing the examination, recommended next steps (such as additional testing) and instructions for your child’s care. We will also send your child’s primary care provider a letter detailing your child’s diagnosis and are plan.
Depending on your child’s condition, he may be scheduled to return to the UCCC clinic for coordinated visits between ophthalmology and rheumatology, or scheduled for individual visits with ophthalmology or rheumatology between clinic visits.
If you have specific questions for your ophthalmologist, call 215-590-5761. For your rheumatologist, call 215-590-2547.
