About Us

Some poor eye health is caused by genes or ageing, but it is also driven by inequality. Women, older people, those with disabilities, indigenous peoples, refugees, and migrants are among those most affected.

ANZEF’s Focus

ANZEF is driven by the desire to provide access to excellent eye care for everyone. As an integral part of the College, ANZEF is uniquely placed to draw from RANZCO members’ expertise in ophthalmology education and standard setting, by investing in three main action areas:

Education and Capacity Building

Created with Fabric.js 3.5.0

Research and Innovation

Advocacy and Awareness
