Eye health key facts: diabetic retinopathy among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Perth, WA: Australian Indigenous HeathInfoNet

These key facts provide information about diabetic retinopathy (DR) among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. They have been developed by the Australian Indigenous HeathInfoNet and The Fred Hollows Foundation. They aim to provide information to assist health care providers in their everyday practice.

The key facts outline information about:

  • how diabetic retinopathy occurs
  • who gets diabetic retinopathy
  • how to prevent vision loss from diabetic retinopathy
  • how to detect diabetic retinopathy
  • how to treat diabetic retinopathy
  • delivering eye care for diabetic retinopathy.

Links are provided to further information. The key facts have also been adapted into a PowerPoint presentation to help health care providers and educators share information about this serious eye problem.
