Iridocyclitis

Uveitis is, broadly, inflammation of the uvea. The uvea consists of the middle, pigmented, vascular structures of the eye and includes the iris, ciliary body, and choroid. Uveitis requires an urgent referral and thorough examination by an ophthalmologist or optometrist—and urgent treatment to control the inflammation.
