The Prevalence and Causes of Visual Impairment in an Elderly Chinese Bai Ethnic Rural Population: The Yunnan Minority Eye Study
Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science, 06/08/2012
Li J et al. – A higher rate of visual impairment was seen in this Bai nationality sample than has been reported from the Han nationality population in rural China. Since potentially treatable eye disease, cataract and uncorrected refractive error were the most important causes of visual impairment in this population, affordable provision of surgery and low–vision rehabilitation programs would help to address this problem.
