The exact reason behind it is unknown. But there are theories that suggest it is autoimmune in origin where the body’s immune cells attack and destroy the body’s own healthy tissues.

The reason why the T-cells start this destruction is not clear yet. 

Women are at more risk of developing scleritis as compared to men. Persons having any of the following conditions are at risk of developing scleritis:Rheumatoid arthritis – It is an inflammatory disorder of autoimmune origin causing joint inflammation with pain, swelling and stiffness of joints.

Sjogren’s syndrome – An autoimmune disorder that mainly presents with dry eyes and a dry mouth.

Systemic lupus erythematosus – In this immune system attacks healthy tissues of the body in many of the body parts.

Scleroderma – A group of diseases in which the skin and connective tissues tighten and harden

Wegener’s granulomatosis – A disorder that causes inflammation of the blood vessels

Inflammatory bowel disease – It includes crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. In this there is long term inflammation of the lining of the gastrointestinal tract.

Infection or Trauma / injury to the eye


The main symptom of scleritis is severe eye pain. The eye pain gets worse from eye movement. The pain may extend to face, head, or jaw. The eyes may also be tender to touch. There is marked redness of white of the eye (sclera). The sclera may also have purple or bluish tinge in some cases. Other symptoms that appear are excessive tearing from eyes (lachrymation), photophobia or sensitivity to light and decreased / blurred vision. In case of posterior scleritis eye pain from eye movement, double vision, deep – seated headaches and irritation in eyes appear.

Types of Scleritis 

It has broadly two types – anterior and posterior.

Anterior scleritis: in this the front portion of sclera is inflamed and it is the most common form of scleritis. In most of the cases it is related to an underlying autoimmune disease. It further has following  types:

Diffuse scleritis – it is very common and easily treatable. In this there is inflammation of sclera throughout the front part.

Nodular anterior scleritis –  in this there is formation of one or more immobile, firm tender nodules in sclera
