Vision 2020 aims to eliminate avoidable blindness in the world by 2020 and targets the
leading causes of avoidable visual impairment (WHO, 2010). Many eye and vision
problems have no obvious signs and symptoms. Early diagnosis and treatment of eye and
vision problems are important for maintaining good vision and eye health, and when
possible, preventing vision loss. This study attempted to find the eye health seeking
behaviours of workers in Ghana.
A descriptive cross – sectional survey using a structured questionnaire was carried out
among civil servants. Simple random sampling was used to select respondents and
logistic regression used to determine factors that influence the use of eye care services
Two hundred and one respondents were interviewed with equal numbers of male and
female respondents. Fifty- six per cent of all respondents had used eye care services.
Respondents with some history of an eye problem were more likely to have used an eye
care facility than (OR 0.096, CI 0.032-0.291), than those who had no history of eye
Intensive health education is needed to inform people of the need for regular
comprehensive eye examinations.
