Uveitis is an inflammation of the eye. Uvea (middle layer of the eye wall) is affected.
Symptoms of uveitis often appear suddenly and worsen rapidly. These symptoms include redness, pain, and blurry vision. A person of any age, even children, can have the condition, which may affect one or both eyes.
A variety of possible causes can lead to uveitis, including infection, injury, or autoimmune or inflammatory conditions. Often, there is no obvious cause.
Uveitis can cause permanent vision loss if left untreated. Your vision can be preserved by early diagnosis and treatment.
