  1. Socioeconomic barriers to cataract surgery in Nepal : the south Asian cataract management study.

    Article - En anglais

    Background-Previous studies have shown that, despite an increasing availability of cataract surgery, important socioeconomic barriers exist in the acceptance of surgery in many rural areas of south Asia.

    The interview included questions on visual function, quality of life, and socioeconomic variables on acceptance of cataract surgery.

    The quality of life questionnaire was based on the field validated protocol addressing the impact of visual impairment on physical and psychosocial functions.

    The questionnaire was adapted to the local conditions after pretesting.

    Data were analysed by degree of visual impairment.

    Results

    Of 319 cataract patients identified only 45.5% accepted surgery, with men accepting surgery more readily than women (RR=1.31 ; 95% CI=1.04-1.67) because of a significantly greater acceptance of surgery in men in the non-blind group.

    The acceptance rate was significantly higher in the blind group (RR=1.74 ; 95% CI=1.36-2. (...)
