An initiative with the vision of establishing a community education program around the issues of eye health, intervention and rehabilitation.

The Initiative

The My Eye Health Program is an initiative of four of South Australia’s leading organisations, with the vision of establishing a community education program around the issues of eye health, intervention and rehabilitation.

The Royal Society for the Blind, the Freemasons Foundation, the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists (South Australia Branch) and Sight for All banded together to make this education dream a reality.

The My Eye Health Program draws on a combination of expertise and manpower, enabling extensive reach into both regional and isolated areas of South Australia and the Northern Territory.

The aim of the My Eye Health Program is to educate and create awareness of:

  • Eye health and prevention of vision loss
  • Eye care services available
  • Referral pathways
  • Skills transfer to the allied health sector and local government
  • Management and rehabilitation strategies for chronic vision loss
