Disease/Condition Glossary

Uveitis: It is the inflammation of the uvea (middle layer of the eye) and the surrounding tissues. The causes of uveitis could be an eye injury, viral/bacterial infection, or any underlying disease conditions. If untreated, uveitis could lead to loss of vision. Symptoms include vision problems such as cloudy or blurred vision, eye pain, redness, and abnormal sensitivity to light.

Iritis: It is the inflammation of the iris (the coloured part of the eye). It can cause serious problems such as severe vision loss or blindness. Symptoms include pain in the eye or brow area, redness around the iris, severe pain in bright light, headache, blurry vision or vision loss.

Myopia: Myopia, also known as near-sightedness, is when the farther objects appear blurry, but the near objects appear clearly. This condition occurs when the shape of the eye causes light rays to refract incorrectly, leading to focusing the images in front of the retina instead of on the retina. This condition may develop rapidly or gradually.
