Pledge your support to stop avoidable blindness and vision loss and to make sure everyone who is blind or vision impaired has access to the supports they need. By sharing across your social media, you will be showing you care for everyday Australians. 
 

Take the #Icareforeyecare candidate pledge

I recognise that blindness and vision impairment is a major health problem in Australia. I know that 75 per cent of all blindness and vision loss is preventable or treatable. And I know that with the right supports, people who are blind or vision impaired can live the life they choose.
 
I support action now to put a stop to avoidable blindness and vision loss and to make sure everyone who is blind or vision impaired has access to the services and supports they need. I care for eye care.
 
 

 
Thank you for caring about eye care.
