About Queensland Eye Institute Foundation

Our purpose is to save sight by providing innovation and excellence in research, education and clinical care. 

The Queensland Eye Institute Foundation (QEIF) is Queensland’s largest independent academic research institute devoted to eye-related health and diseases.

QEIF works every day to save sight by providing innovation and excellence in research, education and clinical care to reduce eye disease, improve eye health, and ultimately eliminate preventable blindness in the community.

Our state of the art facilities in South Brisbane, include the Brisbane QEI Clinic, South Bank Day Hospital, Queensland Electro-Diagnostic and Imaging Centre, medical research and microsurgical teaching laboratories, medical library and the home of QEIF.

With no government funding the Queensland Eye Institute’s survival relies solely on the generosity of donors, businesses and the community.

All profits generated from the South Bank Day Hospital are invested back into the work of QEIF.
