Centre for Eye Health
Centre for Eye Health (CFEH) is an initiative of Guide Dogs NSW/ACT and The University of New South Wales (UNSW).
CFEH aims to reduce preventable blindness in the community by identifying eye disease before irreversible vision impairment occurs. The Centre also assists eye-health practitioners in the management of their patients.
The facility is unique in that it features an extensive range of the most advanced eye-examination equipment in one location. It is also Australia's first eye-health facility to offer such a comprehensive service free of charge to the general public and eye-health practitioners.
CFEH is fully funded by Guide Dogs NSW/ACT. The idea for the Centre came from a 2006 survey of Guide Dogs clients. This research revealed that for some clients, a lack of preventative treatment had led to their vision impairment.
The Centre is located at UNSW's Kensington campus in eastern Sydney. It is staffed by optometrists and consulting ophthalmologists.
To visit CFEH, you must be referred by an eye-health practitioner such as an optometrist or ophthalmologist. Special assistance is available to people who live outside Sydney.
