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.

I spoke to Professor Hugh Taylor, Chair of the University of Melbourne Eye Health, about the report, and the impact of vision disorders on the economy.
