Our readership is mostly based in low- and middle-income countries and includes ophthalmologists, optometrists, ophthalmic nurses and other mid-level personnel (the biggest group), general doctors and nurses, and community health workers.

In particular, the journal aims to reach those who have least access to other resources: mid-level personnel, people working in primary and secondary eye care settings, people working in rural or semi-rural areas, and people working in the government and the NGO sectors.


“I really enjoy reading the Community Eye Health Journal, the information is really helpful. I am working in a rural hospital in South Africa. Most of our patients are young children and older patients who cannot afford to go to private hospitals. We work with limited resourses, but we try by all means to provide quality eye care services to our patients.” Optometrist, South Africa
