We thank you for enabling us to continue our research to save sight

Thank you for enabling us to continue our research to save sight.

Queensland Eye Institute Foundation (QEIF) is Queensland’s largest independent academic research institute devoted to eye-related health and diseases and with your help, we can work towards new treatments and cures. With no government funding, QEIF’s survival relies solely on the generosity of you and the community.

Your donation will enable us to purchase new electrophysiology equipment as well as develop better treatments, advance clinical trials of new treatments, improve eye health education and support talented students to become tomorrow’s leaders in eye research.  Electrophysiology equipment is made up of four separate pieces of equipment that work together giving us the capability to test the retina and the optic nerve. As a result of your generous donations over the past year, including supporting us for the Bridge to Brisbane, we have been able to purchase the unit consisting of the console with computer and amplifier.

Thank you to all who have supported the purchase of this equipment. However in order for us to upgrade all the equipment to test both the retina and optic nerve with this new machinery, we still need to raise further funds to purchase the remaining components. This non-invasive testing is so
important, especially when babies and children are involved who cannot verbalise what they can and cannot see.

We remain focused on promoting and improving eye health while reducing eye diseases, and ultimately eliminate preventable blindness in the community.

The donation you make today could help thousands of Australians who are living with vision loss.
