Leprosy and the eye

Author : Dr Margreet Hogeweg

A slides/text teaching set includes 24 colour slides (46 photographs/illustrations) and a handbook/text of 40 pages.

Up to 100,000 persons could be blind as a consequence of leprosy. However, if associated age-related cataract is also considered the total of blind persons with leprosy will be many more.

This slides/handbook set provides a practical tool for teaching health workers how to recognise and refer leprosy patients with eye disease. It also sets out the measures necessary for the treatment of eye disease in leprosy.
