One hundred and ninety‐nine elderly inhabitants of a fishing village in Hong Kong were screened for vision and ocular abnormalities. About three‐quarters of the sample had a binocular visual acuity of 6/18 or worse and for a quarter of these, the binocular acuity was 6/60 or worse. Less than half of those screened could see local Chinese newsprint well enough to read. Cataract and pterygium were the commonest ocular anomalies found.
