About CFEH

Our vision

To reduce the incidence of preventable vision loss.

About us

Centre for Eye Health (CFEH) is a referral centre offering advanced ocular imaging, diagnostic and management services. Our clinics see over 12,000 patients per year, utilising the latest imaging technology with highly trained optometrists and ophthalmologists on hand to interpret diagnostic images and provide management recommendations.

All services are carried out with no out of pocket expense to patients thanks to the generosity of Guide Dogs NSW/ACT and their supporters.

The clinic was developed with the primary goals of reducing preventable blindness within the community by making these services accessible to all. This is supported by the research team of the Centre which aims to develop new methods of detecting ocular disease earlier and to evolve new referral pathways. We are also integrally involved in education of optometrists and optometry students both through involvement in UNSW postgraduate and undergraduate courses and through provision of continuing professional education.

Innovation

Through forward thinking and use of state-of-the-art equipment, we interpret and apply knowledge in new ways that benefits patients and the greater community through the delivery of quality eye care.

Fiscally responsible

We represent Guide Dogs NSW/ACT. Through their generous funding, we consistently refine operational processes in order to provide ultimate client care at a minimum cost to the centre, and no cost to the patient.

Respect

We celebrate diversity, value integrity, and promote transparency.

As we work in partnership with Guide Dogs NSW/ACT and UNSW to deliver our services, we also work to uphold their values in all that we do.
