INDIGENOUS students at Guyra Central School are looking good in new glasses.

Thanks to a visit from the Brien Holden Vision Institute eye clinic, Ethan Harris and Nioka Levy no longer need to sit at the front of the class.

A number of students had their eyes examined by a visiting optometrist.

The eye doctor attended the school for eye checks in late August.

The clinic is part of Armajun Aboriginal Health Service.

It’s run and organised by Aboriginal Education officer Alecia Blair and Guyra Central School health officer Nellie Blair.

Some eye problems are more common in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people than they are with non-Indigenous people.
