Uveitis (you-vee-EYE-tis) is an irritation and swelling of the middle layer of the coats of the eye. This layer is called the uvea. Uveitis may develop suddenly and can scar the eye or lead to blindness.
A thorough eye examination is necessary to diagnose uveitis. Dr. Dhanu Meleth has completed a uveitis fellowship and is one of the few specialists in the state of Georgia to diagnose and treat this condition. He may order blood tests, skin tests or x-rays to determine whether you have uveitis or another condition. Since uveitis can be caused by illnesses in other parts of the body, your doctor will want to know about your overall health and may consult with your primary care physician or other specialists.
