Centre for Eye Health


Optometrists and ophthalmologists at UNSW’s Centre for Eye Health are taking a new approach to managing patients with glaucoma.


Increased use of state-of-the art eye-imaging technologies could improve healthcare for patients with age-related macular degeneration, but only if professionals receive advanced training on how to interpret the results.



The number of cases of suspected macular disease without a clear diagnosis could be halved under an innovative system that first refers patients to a centre that specialises in the conditon, UNSW research shows.


UNSW scientists have developed a testing protocol that identifies the blinding eye disease glaucoma four years earlier than current techniques.

Close collaboration between eye care professionals improves diagnosis of the blinding eye disease glaucoma and reduces unnecessary and costly referrals to ophthalmologists, a UNSW-led study shows.

A new state-of-the-art eye testing centre has opened at UNSW, offering free services to the public - thanks to the generosity of Guide Dogs NSW/ACT.
