This prospective study was performed to find out the profile of newly diagnosed uveitis patients in a tertiary eye hospital in Eastern India over one year from August 2006 to July 2007. One hundred and sixty-one patients were included; 58 patients (36.02%) had anterior uveitis, 21 (13.04%) had intermediate uveitis, 56 (34.78%) had posterior uveitis and 26 (16.15%) had panuveitis. A specific diagnosis could be made in 50 patients (31.06%). The profile of uveitis patients in this study from Eastern India correlated with those published in studies from North and South India.
