See Through My Eyes is now a Not-For-Profit Organisation!

I am very excited to share that See Through My Eyes is now a registered Australian not-for-profit organisation!

What began as a blog to share my experience with Stargardt’s Disease is now going to not only raise awareness and share information about the disease, but reach the wider community to help make a difference in the lives of people with a vision impairment.

I have brought together a team of knowledgeable Directors to achieve the organisations purposes – we are focusing on education and careers for vision impaired and blind individuals by offering a number of programs including scholarships, adaptive technology, careers counselling and support, workplace seminars and advocacy in our key areas.

My blog will be integrated into our new website - www.seethroughmyeyes.org.au. I will continue to raise awareness for Stargardt's Disease and share my personal experiences and research with you all.

You can follow the organisation on social media:
Twitter: @seethrumyeyes
Instagram: @seethroughmyeyes_au

I am looking forward to the future and change that we will make together as a strong community of amazing vision impaired people!

  1. Nice site, It strikes a nice balance of the concept. I had a natural tendency towards 'mindfulness' from a young age. I am glad that I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation. Thanks for sharing.

  2. This is the best news. Getting that registration is game changing. I remember when we were applying for ours. It took more than a year for them to approve and there was lots of back and forth about little details. I was really impressed with how strict and careful they are. But it just made me respect other non-profits more.

  4. It is very important for the doctors to identify the Symptoms of Retinitis Pigmentosa in order to diagnose it and advise the most accurate Treatment of Retinitis Pigmentosa to help patients get rid of it.
