Effective eye care, both preventive and problem-directed, requires that patients actually see trained eye care providers.
The authors examined the impact of a multimedia campaign on patient behavior in using eye care.
The authors surveyed 2000 individuals 1 year after they mailed in a contrast sensitivity screening card during a focused multimedia educational campaign.
The response rate was 39%, allowing precision of estimates to ±4%. Findings : Those who failed the screening test were much more likely to have had an eye examination in the year after the campaign and were much more likely to have seen an ophthalmologist for their care.
