Uveitis Clinic

Uvetis Clinic

Uvetis is inflammation of the middle coloured (pigmented) layer of the eye, called the uvea or uveal tract. Uveitis usually affects people aged 20 to 59, but it can occur at any age, including in children. Men and women are affected equally, it's very important to confirm a diagnosis of uveitis as soon as possible if you develop symptoms that could be related to the condition.

We have a dedicated uveitis service, where patients with acute and chronic disease are seen, and particular expertise is available in the management of complex cases. We can offer advice on all aspects of the medical and surgical management of all patients with these diseases, including children.

Type of uveitis

Depends on which part of the eye is affected but the most common forms are:

  • Anterior uveitis - this is inflammation of the iris (iritis) or inflammation of the iris and the ciliary body (iridocyclitis), and is the most common type of uveitis, accounting for about three out of four cases
  • Intermediate uveitis - this affects the area around and behind the ciliary body
  • Posterior uveitis - this affects the area at the back of the eye, the choroid and the retina
  • In some cases, uveitis can affect both the front and back of the eye. This is known as panuveitis

Treatment

The main treatment of uveitis is steroid medication (corticosteroids) which can reduce inflammation inside the eye. Several different types of steroid medication may be used, depending on the type of uveitis you have. Eye drops are often used for uveitis affecting the front of the eye, whereas injections, tablets and capsules are more often used to treat uveitis affecting the middle and back of the eye.
