Have Your Eyes Tested This JulEYE!

Have your eyes tested this JulEYE!

The JulEYE campaign is about to kick off. The campaigns message is very clear: Have your eyes tested this JulEYE. It’s as simple as making an appointment and as serious as saving your eyesight.

According to the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists (RANZCO) Eye Foundation, one third of Australians list blindness (alongside cancer) as their most feared health condition. Despite this, many Australians do not have regular eye checks with their optometrist or ophthalmologist. Each year, many Australians are at risk of losing part or all of their vision due to eye disease.

Professor Frank Martin AM, a Sydney ophthalmologist, and Vice Chairman of the RANZCO Eye Foundation Board, says those Australians who are not having their eyes tested at least once every two years need to understand the implications of their actions and make an appointment with an optometrist or ophthalmologist. Dr Frank Martin is concerned that blindness and vision loss continue to be a major, and often overlooked health problem in Australia. This simply doesn’t have to be the case. Regular eye tests are the most effective way of picking up on ocular and vision changes and identifying problems early.
