We believe in the power of science

Vision loss is an escalating problem in Australia, over half the population has at least one sight problem despite many eye diseases being treatable and avoidable. The Queensland Eye Institute is committed to reducing this serious threat to improve the quality of life of millions of Australians. Our research teams explore new diagnostic approaches to develop promising new treatments for all eye conditions. You can help us find the causes and answers to many of the world's major eye diseases such as cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, macular degeneration and many more through a donation today. 

We are passionate about improving our understanding of the nature of eye disease. The institute has a long history of ground breaking research collaborates with external partners across the globe so that expertise is shared and our medical research creates real-life impact. 


Human Research Ethics Committee

The Queensland Eye Institute has established an independent, National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) registered Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC), which focuses on the needs of researchers and sponsors seeking to undertake ophthalmology clinical trials and translational vision research in Australia. To find out more about our HREC follow the link below for all resources and tools.
