Iritis is a condition where the iris becomes inflamed. Generally, only one side is affected and the pupil on that side is sometimes smaller. Typically, the eye is not sticky, crusty or producing a discharge. Iritis is a potentially serious condition requiring medical attention by an ophthalmologist. Fortunately, it rarely causes blindness but it can affect vision while the inflammation is present.
