IRIS – How we work

Flexibility is the IRIS calling card. We focus on addressing all local constraints on the delivery of eye health services. We do this by finding innovative ways to bring eye care specialists into communities to work with local health personnel and treat local patients.
IRIS is co-ordinated and delivered by a dynamic team at Vanguard Health, an entity whose depth of experience in bringing critical need health services to regional, rural and remote Australia is second to none.
For IRIS, patient experience is paramount. We work sensitively with each community and its established healthcare frameworks in order to meet the individual needs of each and every patient we treat.

Providing vision right across Australia

We are constantly looking for new IRIS service locations and love to get feedback from local communities that might benefit from an IRIS team visit. Get in touch if you want to discuss an IRIS Clinical team coming to your local community.
