The Study of the adequate demand of population in specialized medical care is one of the problematic issues in the process of planning of medical care. The aim of the study was to develop an indicator to assess the demand of population with cataract for specialized medical care. Information on the research topic was collected from books and electronic sources, including Internet sites in order to achieve the aim. A comparative analysis of ophthalmological data from the official statistical reporting forms (№ 12, № 14) of Orenburg, Samara, Penza and Perm regions was performed. As part of the study, significant spread in the values of indicators of general and primary morbidity of the population with eye diseases, both within the region and between regions, was defined. The values of the indicator for assessing the demand of population for specialized medical care for cataracts were obtained.
