Get your eyes tested this JulEYE. 75% of vision loss is preventable or treatable if detected early enough, yet every 65 minutes an Australian loses part or all of their vision.
JulEYE is The RANZCO Eye Foundationâ€™s national eye health awareness month that takes place during July each year. JulEYE aims to:
Vision loss can affect people at any time in their lives, and it will often happen gradually so that by the time it becomes noticeable, the damage is done.
Having a family history of eye disease puts you at greater risk of developing eye disease so it's imperative to ask relatives about your family's eye health history and have an eye check this JulEYE. If you have a serious eye condition or noticeable changes to vision, ask for a referral to an ophthalmologist. Youâ€™ll find information on where you can be tested here, and you can donate to the campaign and support eye health research and development projects here.
