Details

Good eye health will enable people to live as independently as possible, have a high quality of life and save the cost of avoidable visual loss. As well as providing an overview of population need in the region and eye health services, this assessment focused on 4 priority areas:

  • children and young people, specifically eye screening and examinations
  • older people, specifically age-related macular degeneration (AMD), cataract and glaucoma
  • diabetic and vascular retinopathy
  • sight loss, specifically blindness
