Improving Indigenous Eye Health
Live Satellite Broadcast and Online Webcast
Tuesday 26th July, 2011 8.00pm (AEST)
Indigenous children are born with better eyesight than their non-Indigenous counterparts, but by the time they reach adulthood they are six times more likely to be blind and three times more likely to have low vision.
Up to 94% of this vision loss is preventable or treatable.
This program discusses different eye health diseases as well as the continuum of eye care that includes prevention, early detection, treatment and rehabilitation. Filmed case studies feature some specific models of care.
