ABOUT US

ALLIED EYE CARE OPTOMETRIST

OUR MISSION:
TO HELP PUT AN END TO AVOIDABLE BLINDNESS

In Australia, 90% of vision impairment is preventable or treatable through early detection. That’s 4 out of every 5 people who are blind don’t have to be. At Allied Eye Care Optometrist we believe the best way to tackle this issue of avoidable blindness is through communication and collaboration with other primary health care providers so nobody falls through the cracks.

We are optometrists working in GP practices providing free eye tests bulk billed through medicare. We keep your doctors in the loop about your eye health, through timely reports and direct communication we achieve better health outcomes for you.

We have a particular interest in diabetes eye care and we know prevention is the best cure. With the number of people in Australia being diagnosed with diabetes expected to double in a decade, it’s worrying that only 50% of Australians with diabetes are getting their eyes tested at the recommended frequency.

We are a fully mobile optometrist eye clinic that helps medical centres effectively implement government health initiatives to reduce the burden of diabetes and its associated eye disease.

OUTREACH

With 89% of the worlds visually impaired living in low and middle-income settings, it’s important to think globally when tackling the issue of avoidable blindness. We support the non-profit charity Eye for the Horn of Africa which shares our passion for delivering eye care. Their initiatives with a team of optometrist and ophthalmologists have led to the screening of thousands of individuals, distribution of used glasses and performing 100s of cataract surgeries to restore sight and improve quality of life to underprivileged communities across East Africa.
