We are rheumatologists, not ophthamologists. I would suggest that you get a second opinion from another ophthamologist. However, MTX is commonly used for uveitis. And MTX is generally a very safe drug. We use it all the time to treat rheumatoid arthritis and many other inflammatory conditions. We like it because it is very effective without causing many side effects. We have some patients who have been taking it for 20 years without difficulty. Good luck !!
