The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists Eye Foundation’s national JulEYE campaign is underway. RANZCO is encouraging Australians to get their eyes tested, as every 65 minutes someone loses part or all of their vision, even though 75% of vision loss is preventable.
This year RANZCO is calling on Australians to “imagine missing the big moments in your life” due to vision loss. They are raising awareness that eye disease can strike at any time, not just in older people. Having the eyes tested as early as possible will ensure the best chance of guarding against vision loss.
