What is Inflammatory Eye Disease?
Inflammation can affect any part of the eye. Most commonly, the vascular layers of the eye are affected; the iris, ciliary body and choroid which are collectively called the "Uvea". Inflammation in these structures is called "Uveitis". Ocular inflammation can occur in association with a general systemic condition, infection or injury. However, often no cause is found. Signs and symptoms of Uveitis vary depending on the type of Uveitis and include:
Symptoms of Uveitis can include:
