The Parliamentary Friends Group for Eye Health and Vision Care dinner was held at Parliament House in Canberra on Monday 17 March, 2014. The dinner was a great success with 102 attendees including parliamentarians, advisers, government officials and representatives from Vision 2020 Australia member organisations.
This year’s dinner provided an opportunity to highlight critical eye health issues in Australia and hear stories from the men and women working in eye health and vision care as well as people who have the lived experience of blindness and vision impairment. The event also saw the launch of ‘Our Eyes – Our Journey’, which is a video that seeks to increase the number of Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander people receiving eye health and vision care services across Australia.
