On a mission to help close the indigenous eye health gap

Specsavers is celebrating the 30-year anniversary of The Fred Hollows Foundation by once again joining forces to make Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples eye care more visible.

This is the seventh year that Specsavers and The Fred Hollows Foundation have come together to launch limited edition frames to raise awareness and funds for The Foundation, with this year’s frames featuring the artwork of contemporary Aboriginal artist, Sarrita King.

The artwork featured on the frames this year is called ‘Lightning’. Representing the memory of the electrical storms in the tropical climate of Darwin where Sarrita spent her youth, this painting captures the subtle beauty within the storm and the way in which the elements gracefully twist and turn between the dramatic lightning strikes. The lightning would crack across the entire sky, creating lines like cracked earth. Sarrita would discover new patterns and colours every time she witnessed these natural light shows.

Specsavers is encouraging people help close the eye health gap by coming in-store to purchase the limited edition glasses and sunglasses, with $25 from each pair sold going to The Fred Hollows Foundation to help carry on Fred’s vision and save people’s sight.
