Material and Methods. The proposed method of evaluation is based on the use of the method of multivariate statistical analysis of the structure and activity of ophthalmological units of primary health care of the Russian Federation, with the allocation of groups of structures under research with similar evaluation characteristics and graphic representation of the results. Evaluation criteria are: availability of specialized ophthalmological care for the population, stafng level, overall and primary disease incidence, incidence on separate nosological groups, general and primary disability indicators. Results. Based on the data representative of the organization of ophthalmic care 50 medical organizations of the Orenburg region, providing primary health care were divided into 3 clusters.
