Uveitis and Iritis

Uveitis is an inflammatory condition of the eye. It can be caused by trauma to the eye, infection or autoimmune conditions. Symptoms of uveitis include eye pain, redness, light sensitivity, and blurred vision. It often affects people between the ages of 20 -50.

Iritis, also known as anterior uveitis has a rapid onset and usually only affects one eye at a time. There is no cure, only treatment to control the inflammation, which is usually very effective. Unfortunately, iritis is often recurring.

If left untreated or in chronic cases, the cornea can become cloudy, intraocular pressure can rise, cataracts develop and retinal swelling may occur, significantly affecting vision.

Treatment of uveitis and iritis involves the use of corticosteroids to reduce the eye inflammation. Most cases respond to steroids in eye drop form.
