Online Support

Thinking about joining our online self-help support groups.  We now have Facebook groups and community information exchange groups.  These free online self-help support groups allow for sharing information, experiences, and support.   Dr. Foster and Frances Foster MS, NP are the faculty advisors for our online groups. In addition to this website, the goal of our online self-help support groups is to help you and/or your family cope better with your eye inflammatory disease. As well as teach you and others about your uveitis and the importance of getting appropriate care. We have a group for adults and family members, parents, kids, and those specifically with pars planitis.
