To celebrate World Sight Day the Macular Disease Foundation Australia engaged in a wide range of activities supporting research and awareness into macular degeneration.
The Foundation was thrilled to have the Minister for Health, the Hon Peter Dutton MP, award research grants on behalf of the Foundation to two leading Australian researchers, at an event at the Sydney Opera House on 9 October 2013.
Keep your eye on the ball was the theme when Bowls Australia and the Foundation joined forces to knock macular degeneration out of play.
The Foundation and Diabetes Australia called on all Australians who have diabetes to have an eye test following the release of Out of Sight – a report into diabetic eye disease in Australia.
