Dislocated crystalline lens in an Aboriginal patient

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The eye health of Indigenous Australians is an ongoing

    concern, with surveys of remote Indigenous communities

    reporting significantly higher rates of visual impairment

    and blindness compared with the urban Australian

    population. Cataracts remain a significant cause of preventable

    blindness in these communities. It is important

    that health practitioners working in these areas are

    aware of vision impairment issues, are able to take a

    detailed history to determine possible causes and can

    appropriately refer patients in a timely manner.
