The Singapore National Eye Centre (SNEC) provides insight on what ocular (eye) inflammation and immunology is about.
The eye is shaped much like a tennis ball, with three different layers of tissue surrounding a central gel-filled cavity. The innermost layer is the retina, which senses light and helps to send images to your brain. The middle layer between the sclera and retina is called the uvea and is composed of the iris, the ciliary body and the choroid. The outermost layer is the sclera, the strong white fibrous wall of the eye.
Ocular (eye) Inflammation is predominantly inflammation of the uvea, the middle layer of your eye, but can involve all three layers of the eye.
