Abstract: Aim: To evaluate incidence and variety of posterior segment involvement specially by OCT in case of acute anterior uveitis during or after acute phase. Methods: 72 patients of acute anterior uveitis attending OPD of R. I. O. M. D. Eye Hospital and SRN Hospital Prayagraj were included in the study. Basic informations was obtained by meticulous history. Vision on snellen’s chart, IOP, anterior segment examination by slit lamp was done. During treatment if vision did not improve much, Direct and Indirect ophthalmoscopy, +90 D lens examination and OCT was done to evaluate posterior segment involvement. Results: 42 (58.33 %) patients exhibited posterior segment involvement in the form of macular abnormality, vitreous haze and pigment epithelial detachment. Macular edema present was mostly moderate (400-550 µ) or severe (550µ). Conclusion: Case of anterior uveitis, if did not show desired visual status, must be subject under careful examination including OCT to evaluate posterior segment involvement as a cause of poor visual outcome.
