At that time the Sydney Eye Hospital was actually located in Woolloomooloo. Today, the SEHF Foundation continues providing support for the Sydney Eye Hospital.

More explicitly, the SEHF works to boost membership in the foundation as well as increase the donations to the organizations from those members and outside sources. These funds are to help purchase new specialised equipment that aren’t being funded through government budgets. In this way, the hospital can continue to provide the latest treatment opportunities.

In addition to new equipment, another objective of the SEHF is to support post graduate training of rising ophthalmologists through the expansion of the support facilities needed to provide top-level teaching. As well, the SEHF works to continue the development of the Sydney Eye Hospital super specialist role.

While all of these objectives can be primarily considered direct support for the Hospital itself, the SEHF also helps to fund research for the prevention of blindness. All of these objectives by SEHF help to make the Sydney Eye Hospital an excellent research, teaching, and training hospital.
