In brief: Inflammation

Inflammatory conditions tend to run together so inflammatory bowel disease is associated with inflammatory conditions in other parts of the body including the eyes.
In the eyes, uveitis is most common inflammatory manifestation but scleritis is also known to occur as well. Google these terms to read about them.
