The middle part of the three layers that make up our eyeball is called the uvea, and the inflammation of this layer is called uveitis. There are vessels in the uvea that feed the eye. Symptoms of uveitis are pain, light sensitivity, redness, blurred vision, and spots in the visual field.

Diseases such as infections, eye traumas, Behçet’s Disease, joint inflammations, rheumatic diseases and ulcerative colitis can cause uveitis. However, in 30-40% of uveitis, the cause is not clear.

Uveitis can be of two types. The first type involves the anterior chamber and iris of the eye, the second type involves the posterior chamber and retina of the eye.

Early diagnosis of uveitis and early initiation of treatment are very important in terms of the course of the disease and the risk of complications afterward. If it is delayed, eye pressure may increase, cataract development and deformities due to adhesions in the pupil may develop.

After uveitis is healed, it is a disease that can recur in the form of attacks over time. In treatment, drugs containing cortisone, antibiotics, dilating drops and other treatments for the cause of the disease are applied.

In order not to be late for treatment, do not neglect to consult your ophthalmologist in case of symptoms such as eye pain, blurred vision, redness, and light sensitivity.
