Please join us at the Melbourne Museum on World Sight Day as we welcome back our donors and supporters to our first in person event in over two years.

Vision is one of the most precious gifts we have. It was not too long ago many conditions – including age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and Inherited Retinal Diseases (IRD) – were considered completely untreatable. But now, thanks to years of hard work to fully understand the mechanisms behind these conditions, we are closer than ever before to many new and improved therapies.

Join our expert researchers to learn about the latest research underway at CERA to give hope to those with vision loss and blindness. At this free in-person community forum, you will hear from:

    • Head of Macular Research Professor Robyn Guymer AM
    • Head of Clinical Trials Associate Professor Lyndell Lim
    • Head of Ophthalmic Neuroscience Associate Professor Peter van Wijngaarden


Meet our presenters and learn more about them below.

Registrations are essential with a light lunch provided at the conclusion of the event. The community forum will be recorded and shared on our website at a later date, however it will not be streamed live.



If you have trouble registering please call CERA directly on 03 9929 8360.

P.S To say thank you for continuing to support us, the Melbourne Museum is offering all attendees complimentary access to the Museum Gallery Space (including the Triceratops Exhibition) at the conclusion of our event.
