JulEye is National Eye Health Awareness Month

May 30, 2019

The whole month of July will become JulEye, which is the celebration of the National Eye Health Awareness Month. Led by the Eye Surgeons Foundation of Australia, this campaign aims to:

  • raise community awareness of eye health issues
  • raise funding for vision research projects into the causes and cures of vision impairment and blindness
  • support international and domestic development projects whose goals are aligned with those of the Foundation

The Eye Surgeons' Foundation is the medical eye specialists’ foundation, dedicated to restoring sight and preventing vision loss throughout Australasia. It is a not-for-profit eye health organisation which represents more than 900 Australian and New Zealand ophthalmologists who are passionate about giving future generations the best vision possible.

Among the top eye conditions common in Australia include:

  • Age-related macular degeneration
  • Diabetic Retinopathy
  • Cataract
  • Glaucoma
  • Pterygium

Some of the ways you can help keep your vision health are the following:

  • Go to regular eye exams
  • Learn about your family’s eye health history
  • Practise healthy diet
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Wear protective eyewear when necessary
  • Don't smoke
  • Regularly rest your eyes
  • Practice workplace eye safety

Wellness inspiration of the week

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills… There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind… So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself. — MARCUS AURELIUS
