It's World Sight Day on 14th October. On this international day of awareness, we're highlighting the link between type 2 diabetes and vision loss.

Type 2 diabetes is escalating at an alarming rate, affecting an estimated 1.8 million Australians.

60 per cent of those will develop some form of diabetic eye disease within 20 years of diagnosis.

Join Dr Peter Brukner OAM, Defeat Diabetes founder, as he interviews special guest Dr James Muecke AM, ophthalmologist, 2020 Australian of the Year and chairman and co-founder of eye health charity Sight For All.
