This calculator estimates for a given population of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people the annual requirements for delivery and coordination of eye care services. The calculations are first order estimates based on condition prevalence rates from the National Indigenous Eye Health Survey (2009) and models of service delivery developed in The Roadmap to Close the Gap for Vision (2012).
Please enter the name of the community/region and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population for the community/region.
A report will be displayed providing estimates of optometry, ophthalmology and hospital surgery services and the workforce to support delivery of these services. This report can then be printed or downloaded as a pdf file or within an excel spreadsheet.
