Abstract: National Health Survey has revealed that three out of ten Aboriginal people had eye or vision problems due to something as simple as uncorrected refractive error or the need for a pair of spectacles. Socio-economic factors like culture and transport are the main barriers and to overcome them the ICEE/AH&MRC Aboriginal Eye and VisionCare Program are creating a strong collaboration of government stakeholders, service providers, community-controlled health services and local communities.
