Donate monthly

Over decades, generous donations from everyday Australians have helped achieve some of the most significant medical breakthroughs in the world.

Today, more than 70,000 Queenslanders who are blind or have low vision remain affected by eye diseases everyday. At the Queensland Eye Institute our mission is to prevent blindness through finding better treatments and cures for people suffering from eye diseases. 

Regular donations are one of the most important funding streams to help us continue our work. It helps us plan ahead and contributes to medical research in the long-term. Just 33 cents per day – deducted as a monthly amount of $10 will help us to get a step closer to a cure or preventative treatment for life threatening eye diseases.

Please help our scientists carry on with their medical research so they can provide better health outcomes for all by becoming a regular giver today and help make our research possible.
