Uveitis is internal inflammation of the eye. It can be caused by fungus, bacteria, parasite, or some type of inflammatory disease. Uveitis affects the middle layer of the eye called the uvea. The uvea includes the iris, choroid, and the ciliary body. The uvea is very important because its many veins and arteries transport blood to the parts of the eye that are critical for vision.Schedule Your Appointment
