Overview

Uveitis is inflammation of the uvea in the eye. The uvea consists of the iris, ciliary body, and choroid.

  • Symptoms of uveitis include sharp eye pain, light sensitivity, red eye, decreased vision, and a feeling of pressure in the eye. Typically unilateral, but can affect both eyes on occasion.
  • Can affect either the front of the eye or the back of the eye and in some cases the entire eye, which is known as panuveitis.
  • Most cases of uveitis are idiopathic, meaning that its occurrence is random and not associated with any underlying condition. However, in severe or recurring cases of uveitis it can be linked to HLA-B27 related auto-immune diseases.
  • HLA-B27 diseases include Ankylosing Spondylitis, Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Crohn disease and ulcerative colitis), Reiter syndrome, and Psoriatic arthritis.

Treatment Options

Mile High Eye Institute are committed to providing our patients with the best and most up to date treatment options for all eye conditions.

  • A topical steroid and cycloplegic(dilating drop) will be given to you to improve comfort and get rid of the inflammation. A pressure-lowering drop may also be prescribed.

HLA-B27 genetic testing may be recommended in severe or recurring cases of uveitis.
