National Eye Health Survey Report

The National Eye Health Survey (NEHS) is the first national survey to determine the prevalence and major causes of vision impairment and blindness in Australia prepared by the Centre for Eye Research Australia and Vision 2020 Australia.

The NEHS was conducted by investigators at the Centre for Eye Research Australia (CERA) in partnership with Vision 2020 Australia and was funded by the Australian Government with contributions coming from CERA, OPSM, Novartis, Zeiss, Brien Holden Vision Institute, Optometry Australia, the National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO) and the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

Project governance and oversight was led by Vision 2020 Australia and the NEHS Steering Committee consisting of representatives from CERA, the Australian Government Department of Health, major contributing partners and the eye health and vision care sector.
