severe visual impairment accessed eye care.

"Interventions designed to increase eye care utilization rates in select sociodemographic subgroups are needed," the authors conclude. "Overall utilization rates may also be enhanced if progress is made toward dramatically increasing the number of Americans with health insurance."

Editorial: Alternate Solutions to Universal Coverage Also Must Be Considered

The authors of the paper "assert that providing universal vision care coverage would insure that financial resources are no longer a barrier for those seeking access to a vision care provider," write Steven M. Kymes, Ph.D., M.H.A., and Kevin D. Frick, Ph.D., of Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, in an accompanying editorial.

"However, we must also consider whether this would indeed be the most effective method to achieve the social goal of increased use of vision care services," they continue.

"Lee and his colleagues have made an important contribution to this growing literature by examining barriers to vision care. However, the principles of scientific inquiry should not be shortchanged simply because we are debating a policy question rather than a biochemical one. The vision care community has an obligation to fully consider alternative solutions and their consequences in seeking way to remove barriers to vision care."
