Overview

The Diabetes and eye health project aims to:

This project will determine psychological and social influences on people's decisions to seek an eye examination, with a particular focus on three groups that are considered at-risk of under-testing for diabetic retinopathy:

The intended outcome of this project will be the development of evidence-based communication interventions that will increase the intent of Victorian adults diagnosed with type 2 diabetes to seek eye exams and minimise their risk of developing diabetic retinopathy.

The project is run in collaboration with Vision 2020 Australia and Diabetes Australia - Victoria.
