The Eye Surgeon’s Foundation started JulEYE to help raise awareness for eye health within the community. The main objectives of JulyEYE are to:
- Increase community awareness of eye disease.
- To raise funding for vision research projects, such as finding causes and cures for vision impairments related to Glaucoma and Age-Related Macular Degeneration.
- To provide support both within Australia and internationally to develop eye health projects.
Encourages Australians to have regular eye checks. Up to 75% of vision loss is preventable or treatable if detected early. Vision loss can occur at any age and can be a slow change. Most people do not notice changes until there is irreversible damage. If you have a family history of an eye condition, it is imperative to have routine eye examinations as this can place you at a higher risk of vision loss.
