A 32-year-old female asked:

How often is iritis associated with serious issues rather than it just being a simple treatable infection?

50-60%: A lot of causes are known to result in iritis, and a careful work up is necessary to diagnose these. About 40% are a result of unknown cause, leaving the remainder of the cases of iritis with an evaluable cause.
