  • Abstract: PURPOSE: The epidemiological profile of indigenous population in Brazil still remains insuffiently known. Considering ethnic groups living in the Center-West region of Brazil a limited number of reports is available regarding their ocular aspects. Based on these facts this study was conducted to elucidate the ocular conditions of Kadiweus population, a specific ethnic group living in Bodoquena's Mountains in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul. METHODS: This is a crosssectional, descriptive and observational study perfommed with 193 Kadiweus Indians of a total of 1197 residents in the small villages in Bodoquena's Mountains. RESULTS: Of the selected sample, 74,9% had visual acuity better than 0.8. Among the refractive errors, hypemmetropia was the most common (9,3%) and miopia the less frequent (2%). Melanosis and pterigyum are the conjunctive most frequent findings, with percentages of 25,4 and 14,7 respectively; dermatochalasis had a frequency of 4,5%. Among comeal detected alterations, corneal clouding related to trauma was the most frequent and, one case of suspected keratoconus was found. Cataract was observed in 5,6% of the sample and one case of iris coloboma was verified. One case of convergent strabismus and one case of divergent strabismus were found. Ocular hypertension, glaucoma or dyschromatopsias were not verified. CONCLUSIONS: This study concluded that the Kadiweus presented good ocular conditions, with visual acuity better than 0.8, in which, melanosis, pterigyum, cataract, dermatochalasis, trauma sequelae were the most frequent findings and hyperopia was the most common refractive error (9,3%)
