Eye diseases and vision problems are the most common long-term health conditions reported by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians. This is the sixth annual report to update the Eye health measures for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. 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 eye health amongst Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people over time, their access and use of eye health services, and for identifying gaps in service delivery. This report includes the latest available data against each measure.
Highlights are presented in Eye health measures for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people 2022: in brief.
