Abstract : Background: Visual impairment, a major health concern has three main reasons for high prevalence - non-availability, non-accessibility and non-affordability of eye care services. The poor utilization was highlighted as a concern because time interval between eye examinations was high enough for certain avoidable or curable ocular diseases to cause irreversible visual loss. Statistics relating to utilization of eye care services from Kerala and among the primary school children are few in literature. This study was conducted to estimate the pattern of utilization of eye care services for realizing the goal to reduce avoidable blindness by the year 2020.
