About

UNSW Kensington Clinic


Centre for Eye Health (CFEH) is an initiative of Guide Dogs NSW/ACT and The University of New South Wales. It is Australia’s first eye-care facility to offer an extensive range of advanced eye imaging and visual system diagnostic services to the general community, at no charge to the patient or the referring professional.

By providing a comprehensive range of tests in one location, CFEH aims to reduce preventable blindness by identifying eye disease before irreversible vision loss occurs. It serves to assist eye-health practitioners to better manage their patients. CFEH provides a very high quality of client-focused service in a supportive and friendly environment.

The facility is staffed by optometrists and consulting ophthalmologists. The Centre Director is prominent vision researcher Professor Michael Kalloniatis.

The Sutherland Hospital Clinic


In May 2017 Centre for Eye Health opened its first satellite clinic, based in The Sutherland Hospital (TSH) in Caringbah, southern Sydney. The clinic has two main roles:

  1. Provision of advanced eye imaging and visual system diagnostic services as per the UNSW clinic.
  2. Collaborating with the existing ophthalmology department to increase and streamline the services offered at the hospital. The clinic provides assessment of patients referred within the hospital or from external GPs and optometrists with a focus on diabetic retinopathy screening and management.
