Abstract

Purpose: To study the utilisation and increase of first eye cataract surgery in one-year age groups between 60 and 90 years of age during 1992-1999. Methods: Data was extracted from the National Swedish Cataract Register (NCR) that covers about 93.2% of all cataract extractions performed in Swedenduring 1992-1999. The total number of living persons in each one-year age group was collected from the Year Book of Statistics in Sweden (1993-2000). Results: The number of cataract extractions in Sweden increased by 54.8% from 1992 to 1999. The rates of first eye cataract surgery in one-year age groups between 60 and 90 years of age were different for females and males and this difference did not change during a 37% increase of the surgery volume from 1992 to 1999. The rate of first eye cataract surgery increased significantly both for females (+29.4%) and males (+27.2%) during 1992 to 1999 in Sweden. Conclusion: The rate of first eye cataract surgery increased significantlyfrom 1992 to 1999 but the gender difference in age-related utilisation of surgery remained unchanged. The increase in rate was about the same in all age groups.
