COMMON EYE DISEASES

Uveitis (pronounced you-vee-EYE-tis)

Uveitis (pronounced you-vee-EYE-tis) is the inflammatory process that involves the uvea or middle layers of the eye. The uvea includes the iris (the colored part of the eye), the choroid (the middle blood vessel layer) and the ciliary body—the part of the eye that joins both parts. Uveitis is the eye’s version of arthritis. The most common symptoms and signs are redness in the white part of the eye, sensitivity to light, blurry vision, floaters, and irregular pupil. Uveitis can present at any age, including during childhood.

Uveitis is easily confused with many eye inflammations, such as conjunctivitis (conjunctival inflammation) or pink eye; keratitis (corneal inflammation); episleritis or scleritis (blood vessel inflammation in the episclera or sclera respectively); or acute closed angle glaucoma. These eye conditions can be challenging to diagnose for primary care physicians and even for many eye doctors. If the symptoms are not relieved with standard eye treatments, uveitis should be considered and patients referred to Uveitis specialist..

Cataract

Cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye that affects vision. The lens is a clear part of the eye that helps to focus light or an image on the retina. The retina is the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye.

In a normal eye, light passes through the transparent lens to the retina. The lens must be clear for the retina to receive a sharp image. If the lens is cloudy from a cataract, the image you see will be blurred.
