Ms Cutting, President of the South East Brisbane Chamber of Commerce, encouraged local businesses to see how accessible building design, through use of good lighting, tactile floor markings and highly contrasting colours, could help their employees - or future employees - who are blind or have low vision. The new facility at Coorparoo, will become Vision Australia's major community service centre for Brisbane.

The Tasmanian Government is helping to fund a new campaign to increase public awareness about the importance of eye health and vision care, the Minister for Workplace Relations, Lisa Singh said.

Ms Singh was at the headquarters of Royal Guide Dogs Tasmania to launch a new advertising campaign, supported by State Government funding of more than $85,000, to promote the need for people to care for their eyes. Ms Singh said that in Australia 80 per cent of vision loss was caused by five conditions - cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, under correction and over correction of refractive errors.

The public awareness campaign is a key component of the Tasmanian Eye Health and Vision Care Initiative. The project is the outcome of a successful funding application to the National Eye Health Initiative by Royal Guide Dogs Association Tasmania and the Tasmanian branches of the Optometrists Association Australia, the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists, and Vision 2020 Australia.
