Sarcoidosis

Sarcoidosis is a disease that results from a specific type of inflammation of tissues of the body. It can appear in almost any body organ, but it starts most often in the lungs or lymph nodes.
Sarcoidosis eye symptoms usually start with reddening or watery eyes. Some patients report blurred vision or complain of sensitivity to sunlight. In worst cases, cataracts, glaucoma and blindness can occur.

The most serious threat to the patient is a condition called Uveitis, the term used for the inflammation of the uvea (the blood rich membrane of the eye). In Uveitis, white blood cells move to the front of the eye, making the eye very sticky. This stickiness can cause the iris and the lens to stick together, sometimes resulting in an increase in eye pressure.

Although rare, if Uveitis is left untreated, blindness can occur. For this reason, a comprehensive eye examination by an ophthalmologist is recommended.
