Important points include:

  • If we are serious about eliminating preventable blindness and vision impairment in Aotearoa New Zealand, then we must have information for the whole New Zealand population.
  • It is essential that the National Eye Health Survey includes a physical eye examination.
  • Only a comprehensive eye examination can detect underlying eye diseases, and prevent or control vision loss.
