Is uveitis/iritis contagenous?

Uveitis is not contagious.
It is an inflammation of the uvea, which is the middle layer of the eye, consisting of the iris, ciliary body, and choroid.
Uveitis can have various causes, including autoimmune diseases, infections, or trauma to the eye.
However, it is not caused by a virus or bacteria that can be spread from person to person, so it is not contagious.
If you suspect you have uveitis, it is essential to consult an eye care professional for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.
