Type 2 diabetes is the fastest growing chronic health condition in Australia. As a consequence of diabetes, diabetic macula oedema has become the leading cause of blindness in working age adults. This avoidable disease has a devastating impact on patients, their families and carers. It also comes at enormous cost to the Australian government and tax payers. Optometrists, in partnership with ophthalmologists and other health care professionals, can play a vital role in reducing the burden.
