Every year 200 Australian babies are born with cataract. The removal of these cataracts causes a loss of accommodation, far sightedness and a deep anterior chamber. It is vital that these babies and young children receive special free aphakic spectacles to allow for improved vision as their eyes develop.
The Foundation will donate these aphakic spectacles to all Australian children born with cataract.
