This is the fourth annual report on the Indigenous eye health measures. The measures cover the prevalence of eye health conditions, diagnosis and treatment services, the eye health workforce and outreach services. The report provides an evidence base for monitoring changes in Indigenous eye health over time, access to and use of eye health services, and for identifying gaps in service delivery.
The prevalence of active trachoma in children aged 5–9 in at-risk communities fell from 15% in 2009 to 4.5% in 2019
Around 44% of Indigenous Australians who had a diabetes test were screened for diabetic retinopathy in 2018–19
30% of Indigenous Australians had an eye health check in 2018–19 increasing from 11% in 2010-11 (age-standardised)
The cataract surgery rate for Indigenous Australians increased by 42% between 2008–10 and 2016–18 (age-standardised)
This is the fourth annual report on the Indigenous eye health measures. These measures were developed to provide an evidence base to monitor changes in eye health among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people over time, and their use of eye health services.
