 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.
