Anterior uveitis is the most common form of uveitis, with varying incidences reported in the literature. Anterior uveitis can be benign at the time of presentation; however, it often can lead to severe morbidity if not managed appropriately. The present article assists ophthalmologists in correctly diagnosing anterior uveitis and improving the quality of patient care.

Ophthalmologists need to work up each case in a systematic manner.
