Oh, what sights we'll see!
Walk. Run. Paddle. Ride. Swim. However you like to move, join the ‘7 Sights Challenge’ to help save Australians from glaucoma blindness. By taking part you’ll not only raise funds for critical patient education and support services that prevent vision loss but you’ll help fund the ground-breaking research that improves treatment outcomes and saves sight.
This March, challenge yourself to Find, Snap and Share seven sights. Together we can take glaucoma out of the picture.
How it works
Sign up as an individual, team or workplace, set your fundraising goal and let others know you are on a mission to save sight. Tell your friends to join too!
Share your fundraising goal and motivation for getting involved in this fun challenge. Ask everyone you know to support your incredible efforts.
3. Find, Snap and Share
Challenge yourself to discover and snap this year's seven sights. Share your progress and pics and ask your friends to help you smash your fundraising goal!
The 7 Sights Challenge is all about appreciating our precious peepers. Look at what you can see! How amazing is that? Imagine not seeing that ever again, because glaucoma stole your sight.
We are calling on you to join the mission to take glaucoma out of the picture. Because every snap taken and every sight shared reminds us how precious our eyesight really is.
Glaucoma affects 1 in 50 Australians and is the leading cause of preventable yet irreversible vision loss and blindness. Your fundraising efforts will help end glaucoma blindness through early detection, better treatment outcomes and support services that improve quality of life.

I still have to take very good care of my eyes – but it means I appreciate the beauty in everything. That’s a joy that I’d love to share with you through this challenge!

We welcome this wonderful campaign, which asks Australians to reflect on the wonders of sight and reminds people not to take their eye health for granted.

The 7 Sights Challenge is a potent reminder that your sight enables you to do things you may take for granted, such as going for a run, riding a bike, snapping a photo or simply seeing your loved ones.
