Inflammatory Eye Disease

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:

  • eye redness
  • discomfort or pain
  • blurred vision
  • light sensitivity
  • floaters or spots in the vision.

In some cases floaters and reduced vision may occur without eye redness or pain.

Inflammatory Eye Disease Treatment

Treatment is usually aimed at controlling the inflammation and minimising the complications of Uveitis, which can result in vision loss if untreated. Treatment may need to be maintained over an extensive time period. Treatment may include steroid eye drops, dilating drops, steroid tablets and immunosuppressants.
