Importance of routine eye check-up regarding UVEA treatment

Uveitis is a form of eye inflammation that affects the middle layer of tissue in the wall (uvea). The symptoms of the disease include redness of eyes, pain, and blurred vision affecting one or both eyes. It is also found that the basic cause of uveitis is not identified due to some underlying systemic diseases. According to the uvea specialists in Howrah, uveitis occurs in the pigmented middle layer of your eyeballs which has three segments: the iris, the ciliary body, and the choroid.

The iris of the eye is a thin and circular structure that is made up of connective tissues and muscles surrounding the pupil. The color of our eyes is totally determined by the amount of pigment present in the iris. Now comes another part which is the ciliary body that surrounds the iris and is not visible because it is located behind the opaque sclera or white part of your eye.

Different types of uvea diseases can be detected by your eye specialist in the best eye clinic in Hooghly before you may even notice any significant symptoms.
