Abstract

MATHEE, A et al. 'Urban insight': A high level of undiagnosed need reflects limited access to and availability of eye-care services in South Africa. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2014, vol.104, n.6, pp.407-408. ISSN 2078-5135.

Findings from an urban community optometry clinic in a poor area of Johannesburg, South Africa (SA), highlighted a high level of undiagnosed need, raising questions concerning access to and availability of eye-care services in SA. It is imperative that we understand vision as a requisite for poverty alleviation, and the need for a public health approach to service delivery.
