Either of the human eyes can be afflicted with iritis, and it is basically the inflammation of the colored portion of the eye (iris). It is generally accompanied with a red painful eye, blurred vision and sensitivity towards light. Anterior uveitis is another term for iritis. If you are suffering from Anterior Uveitis, and it is left untreated it can cause a variety of complications such as cataract, irregular or asymmetrical pupil, glaucoma, calcium deposits on the cornea (band keratopathy) and swelling of the retina (cystoid macular edema) and you should immediately consult an ophthalmologist. If you suffer from a red eye or instances of eye pain and blurred vision it may be an indication that you are suffering from anterior uveitis. Once you visit your ophthalmologist he would put you through clinical examination or tests thereby diagnosing the severity of the case. In case a child suffers from iritis, one needs to jointly consult both an ophthalmologist and pediatric specialist. After your doctor has had a look at the condition of your eye he/she would either recommended eye drops or oral medications depending upon the severity of your condition. Iritis is usually curable but may also last for weeks and months and can be chronic or recurrent if it has been neglected for a long period of time.
