      Is there a link with the common "coldsore" and the devasting eye condition Iritis? Both can occur in high UV and it is common for the herpes virus to manifest in a variety of forms. Can Iritis be linked to herpes and can it be a factor for development?

      Iritis is a type of anterior uveitis. It can occur due to herpes simplex infection though there are many other causes.

      See this article and for description of the pathology, refer to this article

      I didn’t get what you meant by a factor for development.
