Uveitis is inflammation of the uvea, the middle layer of the eye,and causes pain, blurred vision and redness, in some cases. Despite being a great unknown disease, it affects 47,000 people in Spain and it is the third cause of preventable blindness in people between 20 and 50 years in developed countries.

Uveitis explained in first person

Professionals and patients explain how you live with the disease
The message I give patients is hopeful, because the therapeutic options today are multiple and, therefore, the quality of life of the patient is getting better.
You have to adapt yourself to the disease, because you can really live with it.
