The RANZCO Eye Foundation is the medical eye specialists’ foundation, dedicated to restoring sight and preventing vision loss throughout Australasia.


The RANZCO Eye Foundation is a not-for-profit eye health organisation. We represent more than 900 Australian and New Zealand medical eye specialists (ophthalmologists) who are passionate about giving future generations the best vision possible. The Foundation was founded in 2002 as the fundraising arm of The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists (RANZCO) and The Ophthalmic Research Institute of Australia (ORIA).

Each year, 10,000 Australians go blind. About 200,000 Australians have visual impairment that cannot be corrected by spectacles.

Rather than focusing on a single eye disease or cause of blindness, The RANZCO Eye Foundation has chosen to fund ground-breaking research into many of the major causes of blindness; sustainable eye care programs in disadvantaged communities both in Australia and internationally; and community awareness campaigns to increase public knowledge about eye health.
