Connecting Australians with local eye health experts
What is EyeHealth1st?
It is expected that close to one million Australians will be blind or have vision loss by 2020. But it doesn’t have to be that way and a simple eye test could make all the difference…
An initiative of MyHealth1st, EyeHealth1st is a preventative care campaign encouraging all Australians over the age of 40 to book an eye test with their local eye health expert. The EyeHealth1st booking platform is Australia’s biggest optometry booking platform, with close to 70 per cent of Australia’s independent optometrists listed.
Ninety per cent of blindness is preventable or treatable with early detection and regular eye tests are key. Because you may not be able to see the symptoms but your optometrist can. Find and book an eye test with your local eye health expert today.
With the support of our key partners we have the ability to reach millions of people each month and transform eye health in Australia forever.
