One cannot address issues of control of blindness in children without first considering the epidemiology, as this allows priorities to be determined and appropriate strategies to be delineated. Control does not occur within a vacuum, and so it is also important to understand the context in which programmes are to be implemented, particularly in relation to development and poverty-the distal risk factors that are powerful determinants of the incidence of disease in populations. Interventions need to be considered from the perspective of patients as well as providers if services are to be acceptable and appropriate.Eye (2007) 21, 1338-1343. doi:10.1038/sj.eye.6702841.
