Practice patterns of office-based ophthalmologists were characterized using data collected from the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NAMCS) of 1989, a national probability sample survey conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics.
The sample includes office visits made between 1989 and 1990 to nonfederally-employed physicians primarily engaged in office-based practice.
Over 38 million office-based patient visits documented in the NAMCS were analyzed.
Fifty-two percent of patients (20.4 million) were over 65 years old; 90% (34.9 million) were white, with blacks and Asians accounting for 5% (1.9 million) and 3% (1.1 million) of visits, respectively.
