What is Ocular Inflammation?
Ocular inflammation, also known as uveitis, is characterised by an increase in inflammatory cells within the eye’s tissues where they should not normally be present. It can affect the front, back, or entirety of the eye. The condition may arise due to various factors, including infections, systemic inflammatory conditions, or isolated inflammation within the eye. Ocular inflammation presents symptoms such as eye redness, pain, blurry vision, sensitivity to light, and the appearance of floaters. Treatment options can include steroid eye drops, oral corticosteroids, eye injections, laser treatment, and surgical intervention in some cases. Regular follow-up and adherence to treatment are crucial for effective management.
