Organisation profile

The Lions Eye Institute employs 170 scientists, clinicians and support staff. It conducts leading research into blindness and runs one of the largest ophthalmic practices in Australia. Its ophthalmology clinic also has an international reputation for providing high-quality care, with more than 50,000 patients seen each year – including many from south-east Asia.

LEI also houses a Laser Vision Centre – Western Australia’s premier refractive surgery centre, the Lions Eye Bank – responsible for the collecting, processing and distribution of corneal and scleral tissue throughout Western Australia, and Lions Optics.

TheUniversity of Western Australia's Centre for Ophthalmology and Visual Science (COVS)incorporates the Lions Eye Institute.  To view publications visit the Research Publications page on their website or the COVS profile in this repository
