KeepSight is a new national diabetes eye screening program. It is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to prevent diabetes-related blindness by detecting problems early when they are treatable.

Australia has world-class optometrists and ophthalmologists, but many Australians with diabetes lose their sight because they don’t realise early enough that diabetes is affecting their eyes.

KeepSight will change that by making it easier for people to schedule regular diabetes eye checks. KeepSight’s goal is to reach the 600,000+ people with diabetes who aren’t having regular eye checks.

The program is led by Diabetes Australia and Vision 2020 Australia and is funded through a public-private partnership with matching funding from the Australian Government and industry partners.  Vision 2020 Australia is working with Optometry Australia to engage optometrists, encouraging their participation in the program.
