Indigenous and Remote Eye Health Service (IRIS)

 

Description

The Indigenous and Remote Eye Health Service (IRIS) is a joint initiative between the Australian Society of Ophthalmologists and the Commonwealth Government. It is funded by the Federal Department of Health and Ageing and was established mid-2010 to deliver a national approach to the delivery of eye health services in rural and remote communities of Australia.

The IRIS Taskforce, which is made up of representatives from ophthalmology, optometry, eye health coordination and the Federal Government is working on improving the national coordination of funding and general service delivery of eye health services in rural, remote and Indigenous communities across Australia.
