Abstract

This report details the findings of the National Indigenous Eye Health Survey which was conducted in 2008 to define:

  • the extent of vision loss in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
  • the causes of vision loss in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
  • the impact of vision loss in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations.

The survey was designed to plan and prioritise the effective delivery of eye care for Indigenous people. Overall 2,883 Indigenous people were examined. The report records the extent of eye health problems such as refractive error, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, blindness and trachoma.
