Behcet Disease

Behcet’s is an autoimmune disease that causes skin problems, sores in the mouth and on the genitals, and inflammation inside the eye. Uvetis, retinitis, and iritis occur in many people with the disease. These eye disorders may cause blurry vision, pain and redness. Without proper treatment to suppress the immune system, legal blindness is likely.

There is no cure for Behçet’s disease. Treatment typically focuses on reducing discomfort and preventing serious complications. Corticosteroids and other medications that suppress the immune system may be prescribed to treat inflammation.

Greeting

The good thing of the eye clinic is that the patients, who have a vision problem are able to see things clearly and express directly how great ''I CAN SEE THINGS''is. The eye clinic is the place where both the patients and the staff members are pleased and share such feeling together.
The moment I feel the most delightful is when I can share the pleasure with the patients and the staff members. And this is what I live for. I'm trying to work on each work with the precious experience I've ever had.
Thank you very much.
