Clinical Methods in Uveitis represents the proceedings of the Fourth Sloan Symposium on Uveitis held in Baltimore in October 1967. The principal participants were ophthalmologists dealing with the clinical aspects of uveitis. Biostatisticians, epidemiologists, internists, and pathologists also contributed significantly to the program. The aim of the symposium was to develop a fresh, new, and productive approach to the problem of uveitis.

The book consists of 22 chapters divided into three parts. Part I, Methodology, includes epidemiology, biostatistics, the historical aspects of uveitis surveys and techniques employed in selected uveitis surveys conducted in various research centers.
