What are the Symptoms of Uveitis?

Not so different from some other eye conditions, uveitis presents symptoms such as:

  • Redness
  • Pain
  • Light sensitivity
  • Blurred vision
  • Dark floating spots in the field of vision

How is Uveitis Treated?

Early diagnosis and treatment are important to prevent complications or permanent vision loss from uveitis. The most common treatment is eye drops that ease the inflammation. In some cases, uveitis is a result of an infection, so antibiotics or antiviral medication may be prescribed.
