Abstract: Background: The present study was conducted to assess clinical profile of patients with uveitis.
Materials & Methods: 62 cases of uveitis underwent Visual acuity by Snellen’s chart, refraction, intraocular pressure by applanation tonometry, slit lamp biomicroscopic examination and a detailed fundus examination.
Results: Clinical types were acute in 36, chronic in 18 and recurrent in 8 cases. The difference was significant (P<0.05). The common etiology was lens induced in 14, herpetic infection in 24, tuberculosis in 8, blunt trauma in 10 and Behcets disease in 4 cases. The difference was significant (P<0.05).
Conclusion: Maximum cases were observed in males and common etiology was lens induced and herpetic infection.
