Pars Planitis

Pars planitis (Intermediate Uveitis)

Symptoms

Floating “cobwebs”, “small insects”, “bugs”, “tadpoles”, “comma’s”, “hang-man’s noose” like objects that change position as the eyes move (see also vitreous floaters & PVD). Specially visible against pale backgrounds and on closures of eyes during the day. Cloudy vision, rarely red-eye, pain or photophobia. Usually bilateraly and in the age-group 15-40.

Treatment

No treatment is necessary in the presence of good vision (20/40 [6/9] or better). In case of associated CME, treatment is directed to the later.

Steroids locally, systemically and otherwise as also systemic immunosuppressive agents have a role under supervision.
