This study investigates the impact of access barriers to eye care services among people with physical disability in Hong Kong. 250 participants completed the assisted self-administered questionnaires. There were statistical differences in ranking of access barriers between recent eye service-users and non-users. The impact of access barriers including: consultation fee (p = 0.009), need of accompanying helper (p = 0.049), knowledge about service provider (p = 0.011), transportation (p = 0.041), and access into building (p = 0.007) were significantly higher for non-users.
