What is Episcleritis?

Episcleritis is a common condition affecting the episclera, the layer of tissue between the surface membrane (conjunctiva) and the firm white part of the eye (the sclera). In episcleritis, the episclera becomes inflamed and red. It often causes irritation, soreness or a gritty sensation. Episcleritis can be recurrent.

Causes of Episcleritis

Episcleritis is a condition characterized by inflammation of the episclera, the thin tissue layer covering the white part of the eye. The exact cause is often unknown, but triggers such as eye strain, fatigue, prolonged computer use, and exposure to dry or dusty environments can contribute to flare-ups. In rare cases, underlying systemic inflammation may be involved. While episcleritis is usually self-limiting, severe or recurrent cases should be evaluated by an eye care professional for appropriate management.

In most cases, episcleritis recovers on its own and may not need any treatment, but the symptoms can be relieved by using artificial tear drops. If it persists and causes significant discomfort, you may need a short course of steroid drops to help it clear.
