“I am delighted to become Patron of Glaucoma Australia” said the Governor-General.
“Since being founded in 1988, Glaucoma Australia has increased community awareness of glaucoma, supported patients and their families and funded critical research. This is an important mission and their impact has been significant.
“The hard work of those involved, their supporters and the researchers they fund and collaborate with has directly helped the hundreds of thousands of Australians. I look forward to being involved and working with them as Patron.”
