Your tax-deductible donation will help thousands of vulnerable and low-income community members receive the quality eye care all Australians deserve. With your support, we can continue to provide optometry services to remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities as well as outreach services such as providing eyecare to outreach services such as providing eyecare to people experiencing homelessness or to our Home Support Program for limited-mobility patients.
You may also like to support world-leading eye health research through the National Vision Research Institute. The NVRI is conducting research that will lead to the preservation of sight and the prevention of blindness. Current projects include the development of a bionic eye, understanding the flow of vision information in the brain and a range of projects focussed on eye health and disease.
