Uveitis is the swelling of the uvea of the middle layer of the eye, which includes the iris. Caused by certain autoimmune and inflammatory disorders, infections, injuries, and some forms of cancer, uveitis may result in eye redness and pain, light sensitivity, impaired vision, dark floaters, or white spots on the iris. Our ophthalmologists often treat the condition with medication but sometimes the surgical removal of the vitreous (jelly-like material caused by the inflammation) is required to properly diagnosis and treat the condition.
