Uveitis & Ocular Infectious Disease

Uveitis is a condition that occurs in the uvea, or the middle area of the eye. Because the uvea contains the blood vessels that supply nutrients to the eye, any form of uveitis may be serious and may be a symptom for other serious conditions.


Symptoms of uveitis may include:

  • Eye redness and irritation.
  • Blurred vision.
  • Eye pain or soreness.
  • Increased sensitivity to light.
  • Floating spots before the eyes.
  • Flashing lights.
