The Second Sight Project is a blindness prevention program that aims to assist people who have been on a public hospital waiting list for an extended period to access basic cataract surgery.

Criteria to be considered for Second Sight surgery include:

  • Evidence of significant visual impairment due to cataracts.
  • The ophthalmologist must be satisfied that the patient is financially disadvantaged and has tried to access surgery through the public health system.
  • Clinically complex patients are not considered for Second Sight surgery.
