The International Uveitis Study Group (IUSG) was formed in 1978 by a small number of clinicians who shared a common interest in uveitis. Over the next almost 30 years the group has increased in size to about 100 uveitis specialists from all over the world.
The IUSG comprises researchers and clinicians who are committed to stimulate, encourage, and intensify a converted effort in research and clinical management of uveitis, with the goal of developing new methods for the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of the blinding complications of uveitis.
The IUSG is a member of the International Federation of Ophthalmological Societies (IFOS); the Executive Body of IFOS is the International Council of Ophthalmology (ICO).
