The objective of this report is to provide a comprehensive summary of the results of the Barbados Eye Studies (1987-2002), which are a series of investigations on the major eye diseases affecting a Caribbean population. The major goal of the studies was to obtain information that could be used to prevent or control the main causes of visual loss. Consistent with this aim, the current report emphasizes results most relevant for informing public health policy and formulating strategies to address visual impairment and blindness.
