I am 35 yrs old and recently i had a serious eye problem that my white part of the eye got red and inflamed. When i looked into the mirror i noticed some difference from my left eye. My husband took me to the eye doctor to check it out.The doctor said it is UUVEITIS...What is that eye disease?I was on eye drops and some steroids. What ever it is it took so much time to cure..I really hate that..Is there any chance to come back??can you tell us in detail?

Uveitis  is inflammation of the uvea, the middle layer of the eye. The uvea consists of the iris, choroid and ciliary body. The choroid is sandwiched between the retina and the white of the eye (sclera), and it provides blood flow to the deep layers of the retina. The most common type of uveitis is an inflammation of the iris called iritis (anterior uveitis).
Infections, injury and autoimmune disorders may be associated with the development of uveitis, though the exact cause is often unknown.
Uveitis can be serious, leading to permanent vision loss. Early diagnosis and treatment are important to prevent the complications of uveitis.
