Eye health and aged care: for families

Managing eye health and vision loss in residential aged care facilities: A resource for families

Many people living in residential aged care facilities (RACFs) have poor vision and some may even be blind. 

A comprehensive study by the Macular Disease Foundation Australia (MDFA) found high rates of eye disease, often under-diagnosed and untreated in RACFs. 

This pamphlet is part of a suite of resources designed to improve understanding of eye health and vision loss in Australia’s RACFs. We recommend it to anyone who has a loved one with vision loss who is living in a residential aged care facility.
