The term uveitis refers to inflammation within the eye. Uveitis can be divided into anterior uveitis (anterior chamber and iris), intermediate uveitis (vitreous chamber) and posterior uveitis (at the back of the eye). The most common of these is iritis, which affects the anterior, or front, part of the eye and which may become chronic and require permanent medication. The acute symptoms of iritis involve increased sensitivity to light and eye pain. A family history of rheumatological conditions, as well as certain genetic factors, may increase the risk of uveitis.
