Diagnostic value of contrast sensitivity test and conjunctival impression cytology for the detection of sub-clinical vitamin-a deficiency

Prevalence of eye diseases in primary school children in a rural area of Tanzania

The prevalence of significant refractive errors was not high enough to justify a school eye screening programme solely for this purpose, but a programme may be justified in areas where trachoma is common and further research is needed to validate the frequent reports of night blindness and to establish the public health importance of vitamin A deficiency in this age group.
