Knowledge of cataracts and eye care utilization among adults aged 50 and above in rural Western China.

Cataract knowledge is regarded as a significant factor in eye care utilization. Nevertheless, no studies have been published to determine the presence of cataract awareness and its connection with eye care use among senior adults in rural China. Hence, we presented cataract information and investigated the connections between cataract knowledge and eye care use among adults in rural Western China's rural China. Participants' average score on cataract knowledge was 4. 91 points. Correct knowledge of cataracts was positively associated with cataract screening and cataract surgery. Elders with greater cataract knowledge were 2. 21 times more likely to have cataract screening and 5. 61 times more likely to have cataract surgery. To increase eye care utilization in rural China, eye care utilization in rural China needs education on cataracts and regular eye examinations.
