Uveitis types and causes

Uveitis is the inflammation of the eye’s uvea, the middle layer of the eye. But in practical, any kind of inflammation involving the interior of the eye may be referred as uveitis. Patients with any signs of uveitis must receive an urgent referral and thorough exam from an eye doctor. This kind of eye inflammation must be treated and controlled as soon as possible, because it is responsible for nearly 10% of blindness cases in the U.S.
