Majority of vision disorders are preventable in Australia
Vision disorders cost Australia between $11-12 billion in 2015.
Approximately 600,000 Australians live with vision impairment and at least half of these cases were either preventable or treatable.
There is a lack of access to eye care services at doctors’ offices in regional, remote and Aboriginal communities.
