Dear Readers,
Uveitis comprises of diseases of diverse etiologies including infectious and non-infectious causes. The frequencies of these specific causes vary depending upon the population studied and geographical areas of these patient populations. The developing world has a large disease burden mainly because of high prevalence of several infectious diseases. Aravind Eye Care System opened a separate Uveitis Clinic in 1993. With great respect to all our teachers and colleagues, we are very happy to mention that it is 25 years since we started our Uveitis clinic at Madurai. It has been possible only because of whole hearted guidance and support from all our seniors and colleagues. As a part of the celebration, we are organizing a uveitis conference "UVEA 360°" on 28th and 29th of January 2017. The goal of this conference is to provide a holistic approach towards the diagnosis and management of uveitis. Dr. Narsing A Rao and Dr. Emmett Cunningham from US, Dr. Marion Munk, and Dr. Edoardo Baglivo from Switzerland are sharing their vast experiences. 17 national and 14 Aravind faculties from our centers have accepted our invitation. In addition, we have rheumatologist, radiologist and internist to give a complete understanding of the enigmas of uveitis.

At this important moment we are very thankful to our librarian Mrs. Kumaragurupari for bringing out collections of web links on uveitis. She has collected all web links on Definition, History, Types, Diagnosis, Types of uveitis, Treatment, Research and Awareness.

With warm regards

Dr. S.R. Rathinam
