Comments P.118 right column bottom paragraph: "Fig. 1 depicts the relative importance of cataract, trachoma, glaucoma, and other disorders as causes of blindness, by economic region. Cataract is the most important cause of blindness in all developing regions, whereas "others" (e.g., diabetes, macular degenerations, etc.) largely dominate in the Established Market Economies and in the Former Socialist Economies of Europe."
