1. Lions Save Sight Foundation WA

In 1975 the Lions Save-Sight Foundation (LSSF) established the Lions Chair in Ophthalmology at the University of Western Australia (UWA). Professor Ian Constable AO was appointed to this position and subsequently established the Lions Eye Institute (LEI).

As LEI’s inaugural Managing Director Professor Constable has spearheaded its efforts to eradicate blindness worldwide. In 2009 Professor David Mackey was appointed Managing Director and Professor Constable stepped down after 25 years at the helm of LEI. LEI employs 150 scientists, clinicians and support staff. It conducts first class scientific research into blindness and incorporates one of Australia’s largest ophthalmic practices.
