Unilateral uveitis associated with high intraocular pressure[edit]

I've removed the claim "Unilateral uveitis associated with high intraocular pressure is almost always caused by herpes." - This is not true. The vast majority of unilateral acute anterior uveitis is non-infective. Notably, topical corticosteroids (which are often used to treat uveitis) raise intraocular pressure ('steroid induced glaucoma') in many patients, so intraocular pressure always needs to be monitored in patients using topical corticosteroids.[1] --Jkokavec (talk) 02:55, 8 August 2015 (UTC)
