Common Eye Conditions

 

"In 2009, almost 575,000 Australians were blind or had a vision impairment. As Australia's population ages, the number of people who are blind or have vision loss is predicted to rise to almost 801,000 by 2020. The good news is around 75 per cent of vision loss is preventable or treatable."
