Spiritual beliefs part of healthcare for some
HealthDay/Washington Post, September 12, 2008
Almost half of eye clinic patients included in a study attended weekly religious services, and 82% felt that prayer was very important to their sense of well-being. The study included 124 consecutive eye clinic patients who completed a questionnaire that included questions about their spirituality. Sixty percent were being seen for vision problems related to diabetes, 15% for vein blockages, and the rest were being seen for other eye problems.
