Nine out of 10 Australians say that sight is their most valued sense, yet 62% are still putting their sight at risk*. Of all the generations, Gen X, Y and Baby Boomers are failing the National Eye Health Report card and the top reason why nearly 25% of Australian’s aren’t having regular eye exams is that they don’t consider it a health priority*.
Regardless of age, eye health should be a priority and more than 450,000 Australians are blind or vision impaired, yet 90% could have been prevented if treated and detected early*.
