Uveitis is one of several inflammatory diseases affecting various parts of the eye, especially the uvea, or the middle layer of the eyeball, which contains blood vessels that nourish the eye. Uveitis and other related diseases generally occur when an infection causes inflammation in the eye. It can then damage the eye tissue, causing permanent vision loss.
Trained, experienced specialists at California Pacific Medical Center work closely with immunology and internal medicine doctors to assess your unique case of uveitis or other ocular infectious disease. They will then help you choose a treatment plan that may include eye drops, injections or other medications that reduce the inflammation, alleviate pain and prevent further tissue damage.
