SYMPATHETIC INFLAMMATION OF THE EYE





Category: Diseases of The Eye and Ear

(Sympathetic Ophthalmia.)--A
condition in which the healthy eye becomes the seat of a destructive
inflammation transferred from the other eye which has been the subject of
a similar inflammation usually following a perforating injury of the
eyeball. The injured eye is called the exciting eye; the other, the
sympathetic eye.

This is a rare disease, but it may occur when one eye is injured or
diseased and on the first indication of trouble in the injured eye the
other eye should be closely watched for symptoms of sympathetic trouble so
that if can be removed.
