Uveitis Specialist in Delhi
Uveitis stands for a composite term that comprises a group of inflammatory diseases that leads to swelling in the eyes and also causes the destruction of the eye tissues. The diseases affect a particular part of the eye called the uvea.
Importance of Uveitis
In Uveitis, the part of the eye called the uvea is affected. However, the disease is not just restricted to uvea alone. The diseases also affect the retina, optic nerve, lens leading to a reduction in vision or even leading to blindness. It may happen because of some problems or diseases in the eye or it can be part of an inflammatory disease affecting other parts of the body. It can affect people of all ages but mostly affects those between 20 and 60 years old. Since uveitis is classified by where it occurs in the eye, it can be classified into anterior uveitis in which the front of the eye is affected, intermediate uveitis in which the vitreous gets inflamed, posterior uveitis in which the back of the eye involving the retina and the choroid is affected, iritis in which the iris is inflamed, cyclitis in which the ciliary body gets inflamed and even panuveitis in which all the structures (iris, choroid, ciliary body) get inflamed. The Uveitis specialist in Faridabad and the Uveitis specialist in Delhi know all about these.
Uveitis may be caused by any of the factors like injuries or bruises to the eye, toxins that may enter the eye, attack from the body’s immune system, infections or tumors in the eye or in other parts of the body. The diseases are not that much serious and can be treated with the right treatment. You can consult the Uveitis Specialist in Gurgaon or Noida for that.
