Vision ACTion, brings together the major research, education and clinical centres from across the Australian Capital Territory and region that specialise in clinically oriented Vision research.

These include age-related macular degeneration (AMD), amblyopia, diabetic eye disease, glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, myopia, Parkinson’s disease, retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), and stroke to develop novel therapeutics and diagnostics for treating and managing these and other debilitating diseases.
