Queensland Eye Institute (QEI) Foundation is Queensland’s largest independent academic research institute devoted to eye related health and diseases. QEI Foundation works every day to save sight by providing innovation and excellence in research, education and clinical care to reduce eye disease, improve eye health, and ultimately eliminate preventable blindness in the community.

With state-of-the-art facilities in South Brisbane, including the QEI Clinic, South Bank Day Hospital, Queensland Electro-Diagnostic and Imaging Centre, laboratories, medical library, microsurgical teaching laboratory and auditorium, it is also the home of the QEI Foundation.

With no government funding the Queensland Eye Institute’s survival relies solely on the generosity of donors, businesses and the community.
