Lions Outback Vision
Delivering specialist eye health care to regional and remote communities
Lions Outback Vision is directed by McCusker Director Associate Professor Angus Turner and aims to improve eye health through better access to specialist services in regional Western Australian communities.
Outback vision includes a team of ophthalmologists and optometrists who undertake clinical work, administrative support staff, an Aboriginal Eye Health Coordinator, and medical students involved in projects and research.
Patients living in remote communities continue to have limited access to eye health care and also have a higher burden of blindness and impaired vision – particularly Indigenous populations. Lions Outback Vision strives to improve access to eye health in the regions through innovative service delivery, strong relationships with community health service providers and collaboration with community stakeholders and partners.
