    I too have uveitis and have had cataracts done in both eyes. I just wonder if the eye department at your local hospital has an urgent referrals clinic. Ours does and it is open on Saturdays. If they do, that would be very helpful as they would know more about eyes than an A & E doctor.

      When I had my cataracts done I was given an out of hours number to phone if I had a problem. I phoned on a Saturday morning getting a nurse who was at home. She offered to get one of the on call eye doctors to go to the hospital to see me that afternoon. I decided that it was not serious enough for that and she gave me an appointment for the Monday.

The Optomotrist relayed to me this could be the beginning of a macular Hole,. so Scary,,, I am to be seen in one week for a follow-up appointment with my RS at the Eye Hospital,.so will update after my appointment.,,
