What is Uveitis?
Uveitis is a general term for inflammation and infections inside the eye. It can affect one or both eyes, and people of all ages.
- Common symptoms are: eye redness, eye pain, light sensitivity and blurred vision.
- Recent studies have shown that uveitis is more common and severe in people who smoke cigarettes.
