Uveitis Symptoms

Uveitis symptoms.jpgIn the eye, the uvea is the pigmented layer that lies between the inner retina and the outer fibrous layer composed of the sclera and cornea.  When the uvea becomes inflamed, it is known as uveitis.

Some uveitis symptoms include:

  • Blurry vision
  • Redness of the eye
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Eye pain
  • Floaters, which are dark spots that float in the visual field
  • Headaches

Floaters, blurry vision and flashing lights are the most common symptoms.  Uveitis is an ophthalmic emergency and requires a thorough examination by an ophthalmologist.  Treatment for uveitis should be performed immediately.  If you have any of these symptoms or are concerned that you may have uveitis, please call Associated Retina Consultants in Phoenix at 602-242-4928 or associatedretinaconsultants.com for an immediate consultation.
