Our uveitis funded research
Uveitis is an inflammation of the middle layer of the eye, called the uvea or uveal tract. Despite being uncommon, uveitis is a leading cause of visual impairment in the UK.
Uveitis usually affects people aged 20 to 59, but it can also occur in children and teenagers. It's estimated that two to five in every 10,000 people will be affected by uveitis in the UK every year. Men and women are affected equally.
Treatment of the condition is difficult, extended and can cause significant side effects. That's why we have invested in research that can help to find better solutions for those affected by this painful condition.
