Summary The guidelines cover three eye health conditions common among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians: cataract, diabetic retinopathy and trachoma. They are based on a review of existing literature and practice, and provide information about the treatment and management of these conditions in rural and remote communities, offering clinical and contextual advice about best practice in eye health. Although primarily for use by ophthalmologists, the guidelines are a reference for all eye health professionals working in primary health care settings, including optometrists, orthoptists, National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Eye Health Program coordinators, Aboriginal Health Workers and other allied health professionals
