Inflammation of the iris, the coloured part of the eye, is called iritis. Iritis may be associated with an underlying disorder such as sarcoid or tuberculosis. One or both eyes may be affected and may have minimal to moderate pain, decreased vision or light sensitivity. The condition may be recurrent and may result in glaucoma, cataracts and other complications.
