Summary

"Discusses needs to improve eye health services for Indigenous Australians has been recognised by the introduction of a major new Eye Health Initiative in the 2006-07 federal budget, involving 13.8 million dollars over 4 years as well as the allocation of 58.3 million dollars over four years in the 2009 budget. This project examines equity of access to eye health services at a community level by examining the relationship between the percentage of Indigenous people living in an area, socioeconomic status and remoteness access to ophthalmic and optometric services and the professionals that provide them. This project achieved this in three stages; mapping the location of eye health professionals, mapping the distribution of eye health services and relationship between different types of service provision and examining the relationship between the provisions of eye services and health outcomes." -- From introduction.
