The Australian Society of Ophthalmologists (ASO) is the peak professional body for ophthalmologists and was formed in 1982 with the aim of representing the medico-political interests of ophthalmologists within Australia.
A joint initiative between the ASO and the Commonwealth Government was the Indigenous and Remote Eye Health Service (IRIS). Established mid-2010, the IRIS program aimed to deliver a national approach to the delivery of eye health services in rural and remote communities of Australia. From 2010 - 2014 IRIS delivered over 15,000 eye health services across 26 rural and remote towns across Australia. This included over 2,000 procedures to improve or restore sight for thousands of Australians.
