I'm fundraising for Glaucoma Australia

I am taking part in the 7 Sights in 7 Days Challenge to help take glaucoma out of the picture. Can you imagine not being able to see all the wonderful things around us? Saving sight is such a great cause and as a Glaucoma sufferer myself I’m getting involved – please support my efforts so we can make a real difference together.

My Updates

Australia's first lighthouse...

Monday 14th Mar
Located along the scenic Federation Cliff Walk at Vaucluse in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs, Macquarie Lightstation is the site of Australia’s first lighthouse.  Completed in 1818, Macquarie Lighthouse was designed by convict architect Francis Greenway for Lachlan Macquarie, the Governor of NSW. 

Longer lashes...

Monday 14th Mar
This floating sculpture installation made me think of eye lashes. Did you know that some glaucoma eye drops make your eye lashes grow longer?   Yes - It’s rare for the same medication to be used for both medicinal and cosmetic purposes but bimatoprost pulls double duty. In addition to treating glaucoma, it can be used to grow and thicken eyelashes!

Roosters legends...

Monday 14th Mar

This Roosters mural can be found on the corner of Birrell and Council streets in Waverley. It depicts late Roosters great Arthur Beetson on the shoulders of more recent club legends Brad Fittler, Anthony Minichiello, Boyd Cordner and Jake Friend. A fun fact is the mural was painted by Sydney-based street artist Sid Tapia, who is actually a South Sydney Rabbitohs fan, but he was happy to put rivalries aside for this mural project with the NRL. 

A Sea of Frames...

Monday 7th Mar

“Hmmmm” - Sight 1 of 7


What are “healthy eyes”?


Optometrists are everywhere. As I walk toward my local grocery store I count 4 of them within close proximity of each other. Their shop windows are a sea of frames. Possibly because of that I always used to think about Optometrists as a place I should only visit if I needed glasses. You see I never needed glasses so assumed I had “healthy eyes”. This was my mistake. Don’t let the same misunderstanding take your vision or that of your loved ones. Get your eyes checked! 


Talking all things #glaucoma...

Tuesday 22nd Feb
It was a privilege discussing all things #glaucoma with Matthew Layton today on Studio 1, Vision Australia Radio's flagship talk show.

Matthew regards this episode, recorded annually and aimed at raising awareness, as the most important of the year. 

Our chat will form part of a 3 guest podcast being released as part of World Glaucoma Week held March 6-12: https://radio.visionaustralia.org/podcast/studio1
