Diabetes Eye Care

About Diabetes Eye Care

Diabetes is a major cause of vision loss and blindness for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Up to 98% of vision loss and blindness from diabetes is preventable with early detection and follow-up treatment. Everyone with diabetes is at risk of going blind. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with diabetes require a yearly eye check to reduce their risk of vision loss and blindness

An iterative, engaging, community-driven process was taken to develop eye health promotion messages and resources focusing on diabetes eye care.
