Signs and symptoms of panuveitis can develop suddenly and may affect one or both eyes. They may include blurred vision; seeing dark, floating spots (floaters); eye pain; redness of the eye; and sensitivity to light (photophobia). There may also be a whitish area (called a hypopyon) obscuring the lower part of the iris.
