Diabetes is a metabolic disorder which interferes with body’s ability to use and store sugar. It usually affects adults in their late forties or fifties. However, these days owing to lifestyle changes even young people can get diabetes. The classic symptoms of diabetes are increased thirst, frequent urination, weight loss, tiredness or blurred vision.
Uveitis is the inflammation of the Uvea which is made up of Iris, Ciliary body and Choroid. If we think of the eye as a hollow, fluid-filled, 3-layered ball, then the outer most layer is the sclera (a tough coat), the inner-most is the retina, (the thin light-gathering layer), and the middle layer is the Uvea (the vascular layer).
SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF UVEITIS
Anterior Uveitis is associated with eye pain, redness, blurring of vision and light sensitivity. Intermediate and Posterior forms of Uveitis may more typically be associated with floaters, flashes of light and blurred vision.
Treatment for Uveitis will depend on which areas of the eye are affected and what has caused the condition. Medication through drops and injections is the main treatment, but surgery can be used in particularly severe cases.
