Uveitis: Causes, Types, Diagnosis and Symptoms

What Is Uveitis?

Uveitis is a condition that occurs when the middle layer of the eye swells. The swelling is clinically referred to as uvea. It is a condition that can occur due to infectious and non-infectious factors. The uvea is the retina’s source of blood supply. The retina is the light sensitive portion of the eye where the images you see focus on. It also contains photosensitive cells that send them to the brain. It gets its blood supply from the uvea so it is highly vascular.

Uveitis is usually not a serious condition. However, it can lead to vision loss and other secretions health complications if it is not treated on time.
