Acute anterior uveitis (AU) is a common reason for attendance at ophthalmic outpatient clinics. The painfulness and the fear of a transient or even persistent loss of vision may markedly reduce the individual's subjective well-being and pose a psychological burden.
This study will test the hypothesis that during an attack of AU the patient experiences a marked reduction in psychological and physical well-being.
Prospective, hospital-based epidemiologic study using a patient questionnaire with standardized psychological tests and a pain scale.
