In brief: Depends on cause

These two words are basically the same.
They mean you have inflammation inside the front of the eye affecting the iris and or ciliary body. They can happen due to trauma, infection or inflammatory conditions, all of which have different prognoses. See an ophthalmologist to be properly diagnosed and treated. It is important to reduce inflammation to avoid long term affects like scarring.
