Australian & New Zealand Ophthalmic Surveillance Unit  

The Australian & New Zealand Ophthalmic Surveillance Unit (ANZOSU) is a newly established resource that facilitates national active surveillance of rare eye conditions that are either important for public health or whose natural history or management is of clinical or scientific interest.

The knowledge gained from surveillance studies should have impact on areas such as clinical care guidelines, preventative treatment, service planning and public health or pathogenesis and classification of disease. Surveillance based research can be also used to address national health priorities.

Our purpose is to develop and operate a population-based active surveillance system to facilitate research into uncommon ophthalmological disorders; as such the ANZOSU is open to all Australian & New Zealand Ophthalmologists for conduct of research.
