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

    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 working in aged care.
