Ophthalmologists’ Perspective on Barriers to Cataract Surgery and Surgical Productivity in Ethiopia, Ghana, and Zambia: A Descriptive, Mixed-Methods Survey

While progress was made towards the Vision 2020: The Right to Sight goals, Ethiopia, Ghana, and Zambia fell short of the recommended cataract surgical rate (CSR) on a national level. Post-operative cataract surgical outcomes are also lower compared to other regions. This study aimed to describe perceived barriers to cataract surgical uptake, factors related to surgeon surgical productivity, and surgical offerings in each of these countries.
