Intraocular Inflammation (Uveitis)

A sheath of 3 layers surrounds the gel-like substance at the center of the eyeball. The middle layer is called the “uvea”. Inflammation of the uvea is called “uveitis“. Uveitis may affect any or all of the layers called the iris, choroid and ciliary body, the three of which are named the uvea together. Uveitis is an urgent disease and should be diagnosed timely.
