Ocular Inflammation & Uveitis Treatment


Uveitis is one of the leading causes of preventable blindness in developed countries. It refers to any inflammation involving the interior of the eye.


Uveitic conditions are much more common than you may think. In Singapore, the pattern of anterior uveitis among the Chinese were more frequent while the Malays and Indians experiences tuberculosis uveitis quite often.

What You Need To Know

Common Symptoms of Uveitis include:

  • Redness of the eye
  • Blurred vision
  • Sensitivity to light (photophobia)
  • Dark, floating spots along the visual field
  • Eye pain

Uveitis may come on suddenly with redness and pain, or sometimes with painless blurring of your vision. A case of simple “red eye” may in fact be a serious problem of uveitis. If your eye becomes red or painful, and does not clear up quickly, you should be examined and treated by an ophthalmologist.

Types of Uveitis and Causes


Microorganism such as virus, bacteria, fungus and parasite can affect the eye and result in ocular infection. Common symptoms include blur vision and floaters with or without a painful red eye.

Types of Infections
