Anyinginyi eye health program

 

Overview

This program coordinates optometrist and eye specialist visits - routine and surgical - and runs a permanent and travelling eye clinic to serve Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people in the Barkly region, Northern Territory. It is able to provide glasses at subsidised prices and is particularly focused on yearly eye checks for people with diabetes.

It has been recognised in these ways:
