Vision Australia

 

Description

Vision Australia is a leading provider of blindness and low vision services in Australia. Their specialists offer a wide range of support to people of all ages, life stages and circumstances. Programs and services include:

Anyone who is suspected of having or has a problem with their eyesight that cannot be corrected by glasses or contact lenses can be referred to Vision Australia. Vision Australia centres are located in Victoria, New South Wales, the Australian Capital Territory, Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia.

In 2015 Vision Australia entered into a formal arrangement with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Health Service (ATSICHS) Brisbane, located at Woolloongabba. This formal partnership has improved access and expanded the specialist eye health and wellbeing services being offered through ATSICHS. The ATSICHS Eye Health Coordinator works closely with the Optometrists from the Institute of Urban Indigenous Health to identify people who could benefit from services provided by Vision Australia. Vision Australia provides specialist services from the Woolloongabba ATSICHS Clinic on a quarterly basis.

Vision Australia acknowledges and respects the diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures across Australia, and the importance of providing culturally sensitive services that meet community and individual needs.
