In November 2019, we released our second annual Eye Health Report, which outlines the various eyecare initiatives Specsavers is implementing as part of our Transforming Eye Health Strategy.

The report sets the benchmark on eye disease prevalence, detection, and diagnosis rates while providing guidance to the eye health professions, related stakeholders and government on the measured facts surrounding eye care, eye disease and eye health in Australia and New Zealand.

As our Director of Optometry, Dr Ben Ashby discusses in the video above, our Transforming Eye Health Strategy brings together data, access to technology and services and inter-disciplinary relationships with a focus on eliminating preventable vision loss, particularly around diseases such as diabetes, glaucoma and macular degeneration.

In this report, data from 8.5 million patient journeys were reviewed to quantify the impact of clinical strategies, as well as the Australian public’s attitudes towards eye health.

Over the next few weeks, we will be delving into the detail of this report, and how the data we are collecting and analyzing is contributing to our ability to improve health outcomes in Australia and New Zealand.
