Vision Impairment Register

The Australian Childhood Vision Impairment Register is sponsored by the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children, in partnership with low vision service providers, education providers, and eye health professionals across Australia. The aim of the Register is to collect data to build an accurate picture of Australian children with vision impairment. The data is used by groups who provide services to children with vision impairment and also by researchers working in the field of childhood eye and vision disorders.

Sue Silveira, RIDBC paediatric orthoptist, academic and researcher presented at the recent Australian and New Zealand Strabismus Society meeting in Sydney. This is a specialist interest group of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists (RANZCO). Sue’s presentation provided a research update on the latest data available from the Australian Childhood Vision Impairment Register (ACVIR), an RIDBC initiative, founded in partnership with families, health professionals, educators and other low vision agencies to address the lack of reliable national, state-by-state data on Australian children with vision impairment.
