Uveitis is a condition of the eye that causes the uvea or uveal tract to become inflamed and swollen. It can affect one or both eyes, and can advance both slowly and rapidly.



  • Headaches.

  • Redness of the eye.

  • Pain in the eye – the eye may feel sore or tender, with the pain ranging from mild to severe. Trying to focus your eye may also make the pain worse.

  • Photophobia.

  • Peripheral Vision Loss.

  • Irregular Pupil Shape – it may not shrink when you shine a light on it.

  • Floaters (spots in your vision).



Most cases of uveitis are treated by medication, however severe uveitis may require surgery. The treatment normally depends on the type of uveitis and the underlying cause.
