Local steroids can cause a rise in intraocular pressure (steroid-induced glaucoma) and the long-term use of systemic steroids can result in the formation of posterior subcapsular cataract. Treatment for an infective aetiology of iritis must be aimed at the cause. Antiviral agents for herpes simplex, penicillin for, syphilis and antituberculous therapy for the rare cases of tuberculosis are necessary. Anti-inflammatory treatment for the eye is given by local steroids, which can be in drops or ointment.
Treatment is generally palliative but secondary infection requires antibiotics, and keratitis, if present, may be helped by steroids. Viral conjunctivitis is usually self-limiting but two types can cause particularly serious complications. Trachoma Gonococci These cause ophthalmia neonatorum by direct infection from the mother at the time of birth.

The condition is now rare in Europe and America, but is a common cause of blindness in the Indian subcontinent.
Although vision fails, its loss is neither so sudden nor complete. The fundus changes are usually severe. Haemorrhages are widespread throughout the retina. The deeper round-shaped haemorrhages are masked by the superficial flame-shaped variety caused by leakage of blood in the nerve fibre layer of the retina. The retinal veins are grossly dilated and loop in snake-like fashion in and out of the oedematous retina (Figure 11). Scattered soft exudates may occur, and the disc is often swollen and partially obscured by haemorrhages.
