New Zealand National Eye Centre (NZ-NEC)


The New Zealand National Eye Centre (NZ-NEC) launched in 2008 as the culmination of more than eight years of collaboration and planning between many researchers in the field of ophthalmology, optometry, eye health and visual sciences in the University of Auckland.

The unique composition of the Centre includes the two ophthalmic professions - the Department of Ophthalmology and the Department of Optometry and Vision Science incorporating the Molecular Vision Laboratory, previously based in the Department of Physiology. The NZ-NEC constituent departments currently have a combined staff of more than 100 clinicians, clinician-scientists and vision-scientists, including honorary appointments, working in the area of eye health, vision research and education in New Zealand.
