4. Does Uveitis Affect Vision?

Floaters and blurry vision are the most common vision problems associated with uveitis. However, they aren’t the only ones. In some cases, particularly those involving chronic inflammation, the retina itself can become inflamed. This is known as retinal edema.

Some of the more serious complications that can result include glaucoma, cataracts, damage to the optic nerve, and retinal scarring or detachment. Any of these conditions can cause permanent impairment or total loss of vision.
