Unfortunately, there is currently no cure for birdshot chorioretinopathy. Because this condition is rare, there are no established guidelines for treatment. Treatment is determined based on the severity of each affected individual's symptoms. Because birdshot chorioretinopathy is suspected to be an autoimmune disease, therapies aim to regulate the body's immune response. Therapies may include corticosteroids such as prednisone (by injection or medication taken by mouth) or medications that suppress the immune system such as cyclosporine.
