Welcome to the Uvea Services at M.N. Eye Hospital, Chennai!

Understanding Uvea: The uvea is the middle layer of the eye that includes the iris, ciliary body, and choroid. These structures are responsible for regulating the amount of light entering the eye, controlling focus, and nourishing the retina. Uveitis refers to the inflammation of the uvea and can impact your vision if not managed properly.

Conditions We Treat: Our experienced uvea services team is equipped to diagnose and treat various conditions, including:

Anterior Uveitis (Iritis): Inflammation of the iris and the front part of the uvea, often associated with autoimmune diseases.

Intermediate Uveitis (Pars Planitis): Inflammation involving the ciliary body and adjacent areas, which can affect the vitreous gel and retina.

Posterior Uveitis (Choroiditis) Inflammation of the choroid, which can affect the retina and lead to visual disturbances.

Panuveitis: Inflammation involving all layers of the uvea, often associated with systemic diseases.

Our services include:

Comprehensive Evaluation: Thorough examination and diagnostic tests to determine the type and extent of uveitis, as well as to identify any underlying causes.
