Uveitis can occur when the middle layer of your eyeball called the Uvea becomes red and swollen. The Uvea contains the many blood vessels that provide nourishment to your eye. If blood vessels become damaged, the injured tissue layer can cause you to temporarily or, even worse, permanently lose your vision.
What are the different types of Uveitis?
The different types of Uveitis depend on the part of the eye that they live in. This may include swelling of the uvea in the:
Front of the eye
Middle of the eye

Bright red eyes without any feeling of pain
