The iris is a circular, pigmented membrane that provides the eye its color and the opening in the center is the pupil of the eye. It is caused due to Blunt trauma to the eye. Trauma to the eye causes injury and death to cells that subsequently form necrotic products.These necrotic products stimulate an inflammatory reaction. Increased permeability of blood vessels in the eye allow inflammatory cells (WBCs), inflammatory mediators (proteins, etc.), and other blood contents to enter the eye tissue and eye media. Nontraumatic iritis is frequently associated with certain diseases, such as ankylosing spondylitis, Reiter syndrome, sarcoidosis, inflammatory bowel disease, and psoriasis and Infectious causes may include Lyme disease, tuberculosis, toxoplasmosis, syphilis, and herpes simplex and herpes zoster viruses.
