Improving Vision and Quality of Life: An innovative and comprehensive eye care model for individuals in residential care facilities
To date, Australia does not have a comprehensive eye health service model for those living in residential care facilities. To address this gap, we have developed a novel model of eye care for people living in residential care facilities. We have pilot tested this new model and our initial results suggest that it has the potential to be an effective eye care model for managing vision impairment and improving QoL for this subset of the Australian population. In this study, we assess the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of this new model of eye care for older people across several residential care facilities.
