What kind of eye problems can occur in patients diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis?
Uveitis (inflammation of part of the eye) is the most common AS-related issue not affecting the joints. Anterior uveitis affects the colored part of the eye and causes pain in the eye, blurring of vision, and sensitivity to light. Eye medications are effective in treating uveitis due to AS.
