Abstract

Review of the world literature on attempts to discover how many people are disabled by poor sight suggested that estimates of prevalence and cause have been constantly hampered by differences of definition, and the difficulties

using both self identification alone and self identification followed by visual acuity measurement, but they have seldom covered whole populations and have

tended to ascribe all hardship to the single cause without exploring the possible relationships with other disabling conditions.
