Cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity are by far the largest health challenges Australians will face as the population grows older. To better care for and preserve vision for those living with diabetes, one needs to understand the pathophysiology, and the multilayered nature of its impact, physically, socially and emotionally, so that an effective multidisciplinary and holistic approach can be applied. Within this scope of understanding, an appreciation of the variability of statistics and presentations between every individual is crucial to effectively co-manage and support those with diabetes so that they can maintain the best attainable vision and sustain a good quality of life.
