    Annotation Diseases of the eye and its appendages (Н00-Н59) in the Ukrainian population are characterized by annual growth of the severity indicators. We conducted the analysis of indicators of morbidity and prevalence of eye diseases and appendages of the eye (including glaucoma) among the population of Ukraine as a whole and of the Vinnytsia region in 2014-2016 (within the structure of the group H00-H59). In 2014-2016, the number of references to treatment- and preventive institutions for all diseases was growing steadily (from 175 654.0 in 2014 to 179 101.6 per 100 thousand of the population in 2016). The highest number of all registered disease cases (including the first registered cases) per 100 thousand of the population of Ukraine was presented in 2016 (172 692.9). The results of the analysis of eye diseases and glaucoma in Ukraine in a working age population in the structure of general morbidity in 2014-2016 suggest that this indicator is significantly lower compared to the unemployed population. We revealed an increase of the indicator of the emergence glaucoma in the Vinnytsia region, which requires a strong need in optimization of medical care to patients of the ophthalmologic profile and timely diagnostics measures. We drew up a conclusion about inadequate medical and preventive activities taken by health care institutions and a lack of attention paid by individuals to their own health.
