Vision disorders affect a significant number of Australians and the likelihood of developing a sensory problem only increases with age. In Australia, about 55% of the population and 93% of people over the age of 55 are affected by a long-term vision disorder. Approximately 50% of Australians use corrective lenses (glasses or contacts). Given these statistics, it is almost certain that you will encounter clients who use corrective lenses, especially when caring for older adults.
