1) Pars planitis (also called intermediate uveitis) is an inflammation of the uvea, part of the choroid lining in the eye which contains the blood vessels, that causes white blood cells and other inflammatory exudate to enter the vitreous humor (see Figure 1) and make white blobs (snowballs) build up, which impairs the vision and can lead to cataract, severe inflammatory glaucoma, swelling of the macula, retinal atrophy, and hemorrhage into the vitreous.
Coverage also includes understanding and treating refractive, eye movement, and alignment disorders, and disorders of the cornea, conjunctiva, sclera, iris, pupil, macula, optic nerve, retina, vitreous, and uvea, such as cataracts, conjunctivitis, pink eye, macular degeneration, uveitis, iritis, vitreous detachment, floaters, and glaucoma, and eyeglasses and contact lenses, LASIK and LASEK surgery, photorefractive keratectomy surgery, and phakic intraocular lenses.
