The Uvea is the part of an eye made up of blood vessels, the iris, the ciliary body, and the choroid. The Uvea is positioned between the sclera and retina. The progression of inflammation in the eyes causes the Uveal tissue to swell.
It has a significant effect on deteriorating the health of the lens, retina, optic nerve, and vitreous. In severe conditions, it might lead to vision loss and blindness. People of all ages can contract the Uvea eye disorder. The prevalence of the illnesses can be acute or chronic, depending on their advancement and the appropriate treatment to stabilize them. An individual can contract the reoccurrence of Uvea illness based on their health condition.
Uveitis can affect one or both eyes simultaneously. The progression of the symptoms can be aggressive.
Based on the type and severity of inflammation, the signs and symptoms vary. Eye Examination and its results are helpful in categorizing the type of Uveitis. Eye pain, blurred vision, eye redness, and sensitivity to light are the commonly experienced symptoms of acute anterior Uveitis. Blurred vision and eye floaters are signs of intermediate Uveitis. Vision loss is a sign of posterior Uveitis.
Tissue damage, viral infection, and the segregation of toxins are the major causes of inflammation. The advancement of inflammation leads to swelling and redness. It reduces the WBC, which fights against illnesses. The development of inflammation in the Uveal tissue advances Uveitis. Some of the primary causes of Uveitis are:
The diagnosis of Uveitis includes a thorough patient’s medical history and a detailed examination of the eye to record the findings.
Ancillary investigations and laboratory tests are conducted to examine the prevailing condition of infection and autoimmune disorder, which helps our ophthalmologists decide the appropriate Uvea treatment.
Eye Chart or Visual Acuity Test: This test measures whether a patient’s vision has decreased.
In most cases, people with Uveitis experience chronic Uvea conditions. Cloudy cornea, cataracts, elevated eye pressure (IOP), glaucoma, and retinal detachment are the complications of Uveitis that are diagnosed when the disease prevails for a long time and the Uvea eye infection is untreated.
Our Eye Specialist diagnoses the Uvea condition precisely and provides appropriate treatment to stabilize the prevailing inflammation and eye pain, prevent the advancement of tissue damage, and restore the quality of vision.
Based on the Uveitis type and condition, our Ophthalmologists provide the treatment specified for it.
The advancement of muscle spasms in the iris and ciliary body can be prevented with the aid of eye drops.
The severity of inflammation can be controlled with the aid of eye drops that contain a medical combination of steroids.
These Uvea eye conditions are treated with the aid of injects performed around the eye, oral medication, and time-release capsule surgical procedures. At Trinity, our Ophthalmologists perform a complete diagnosis and ensure the patient is free from other eye infections.
Routine eye check-ups are recommended for patients to monitor their progress and to prevent the side effects, including cataracts and glaucoma, of this treatment.
