The Magrabi ICO Cameroon Eye Institute (MICEI) has been involved in community outreach since its inception in 2016. Since then more than 1000 outreach cataract surgeries have been performed. This notwithstanding quite a good number of patients diagnosed of cataract during outreach camps still remain in the community for one reason or the other, reducing the cataract acceptance rate. This study explores some of the reasons for the low cataract surgical win in the Lékié District of the Centre Region of Cameroon.
