Report finds Indigenous blindness preventable

A new report from the University of Melbourne and the PwC shows that a future 32,000 cases of Indigenous blindness can be prevented.

The report looks at the cost of preventing and treating long and short-sightedness, old-age vision degeneration, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy and the communicable disease, trachoma.

Professor Hugh Taylor, Chair of the University of Melbourne Eye Health, speaks about the impact of vision disorders on the economy.
