About Us

The Centre for Vision Research was established in 2001 to bring together the vision and allied sensory research being conducted by the University of Sydney Department of Ophthalmology at Westmead Hospital, in collaboration with many other University departments and their Research Centres.

Mission: To research the prevalence, incidence and risk factors for vision and other sensory impairment in Australia and to develop strategies to reduce their frequency and impact.

The Centre for Vision Research is currently one of 8 research groups of the Westmead Millennium Institute (WMI). WMI is a research institute of the University of Sydney, is registered for charitable donations (through its Foundation) and is a recipient of research infrastructure funding from New South Wales Health. The Centre is also affiliated with Macular Degeneration Foundation Australia, of which Professor Paul Mitchell is a founding director and board member.

Current staff of the Centre include its director and executive officer, plus key research personnel: epidemiology, statistical and photographic grading staff, as well as postgraduate research fellows (see Staff).
