Uveitis is internal inflammation of the eye. It can be caused by fungus, bacteria, parasite, or some type of inflammatory disease. Uveitis affects the middle layer of the eye called the uvea. The uvea includes the iris, choroid, and the ciliary body. The uvea is very important because its many veins and arteries transport blood to the parts of the eye that are critical for vision.
Symptoms: Redness and irritation, blurry vision, eye pain,
light sensitivity, and floaters
Treatments: Common treatments for uveitis are eye drops that ease the inflammation. If uveitis is a result of an infection, antibiotics drops or injections of antibiotics in the eye may be required. For other forms of uveitis antiviral medications may be prescribed or injections of antiviral medications injected in to the eye along with medication to relieve pain.
