About Eye Health Aotearoa

Eye Health Aotearoa Trust is New Zealand’s peak advocacy body on eye health and vision care. Our vision is for accessible, comprehensive eye health services for all New Zealanders. Our mission is to partner with Government to reform the New Zealand eye health system to prevent avoidable blindness.

Eye Health Aotearoa is a multi-sector collaborative of representatives from across the Eye Health Sector

We’ve banded together to ensure that all New Zealanders can access equitable, quality eye health services and prevent avoidable vision loss. Our plan is affordable and achievable. It will significantly improve New Zealanders’ eye health and reduce costs elsewhere in the health system. It targets high-risk communities who are unable to access eye health services.

We collaborate to ensure all New Zealanders can access quality eye health care

We use research to gain insights and provide evidence for change. We advocate the need for the change that's needed.

Eye Health Aotearoa is a proud member of the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB).
