Ocular inflammation is a serious eye condition that may scar the eye. You need to have it treated as soon as possible. Eye drops, especially steroids and pupil dilators, can reduce inflammation and pain. For more severe inflammation, oral medication or injections may be necessary.
Uveitis may have these complications:
Glaucoma (increased pressure in the eye)
Cataract (clouding of the eye's natural lens)
Neovascularisation (growth of new, abnormal blood vessels) These complications may develop in chronic severe inflammation. Specialist care is essential to ensure your condition is appropriately managed.
