A book celebrating 30 years of the Lions Eye Institute is now available
The Lions Eye Institute’s unique place in Western Australian history is celebrated in the publication Saving Sight – 30 years of the Lions Eye Institute 1983-2013.
The book details the mobilisation of Lions Club members to the cause of saving sight, ophthalmologist Dr Robert Linton’s establishment of the Australian Foundation for the Prevention of Blindness in 1964, mass community glaucoma screenings, the appointment of Professor Ian Constable to the first Chair of Ophthalmology at The University of WA in 1975 and the eventual establishment of the Lions Eye Institute (LEI) in 1983.
The book contains a range of fascinating historical photographs, as well as chapters on the LEI’s internationally-renowned medical research, clinical services and outreach work both in remote Western Australian communities and overseas.
The book is available for $25.00, with proceeds supporting the LEI’s medical research.
