Why You Need to be Serious About Eye Inflammation?

October 18, 2016 | by DoctorSolve

Inflammation in the eyes is a common condition that is treated as a minor annoyance. But in some severe cases, it ends up becoming a condition known as Uveitis, which affects 2.3 million people in the United States. The root of the word “uveitis” is uvea, the pigmented layer in the eye that is affected by inflammation.

Common symptoms of this disease include redness in the eyes, severe inflammation that feels like burning, and blurry vision.  It is important that this condition is taken seriously and that people seek treatment because it can lead to vision loss. Symptoms for this condition tend to worsen very quickly and it is best to seek medical advice if you suspect that you may have uveitis.

It is vitally important that a patient is aware of the preliminary steps when addressing this condition. First and foremost, it is important to seek the advice of a medical professional. Many may suggest that in the early stages, an “anti-inflammatory medication, such as a corticosteroid” [1] is a good option. If the condition does not get better stronger forms of medication or surgery may be suggested.
