Bottom line: Uveitis affects the structures of the uveal tract, which includes the iris, ciliary body and choroid and which supplies blood to most of the eye. Findings in uveitis may include a rim of hyperemia around the limbus (“ciliary flush”), adhesions of the iris (synechiae), eye pain. Findings vary based on the cause and specific location of inflammation. Findings in scleritis include a deep red color of the sclera going deep to the conjunctiva in the sclera.
