Wellington Aboriginal Corporation Health Service Regional Eye Health Program

 

Overview

The Regional Eye Health Program aims to provide culturally appropriate eye health screening and treatment services to Aboriginal people throughout central New South WAles (NSW). It is coordinated by the Wellington Aboriginal Corporation Health Service (WACHS), and funded by the Office of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health (OATSIH) and the NSW Health Department. 

The regional towns covered in the program are Baradine, Bathurst, Condobolin, Coonabarabran, Cowra, Dubbo, Forbes, Gilgandra, Gulargambone, Kelso, Narromine, Nyngan, Orange, Parkes, Peak Hill, Warren and Wellington.

The program provides services from basic eye care to ophthalmological treatment for eye diseases such as cataracts, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma. The program also offers eye health screening and treatment at schools in the region.
