According the to CNIB every 12 minutes someone in Canada starts to lose their vision and more than 800,000 Canadians live with vision loss.  The majority of vision loss is preventable.  From regular eye examinations, to eating healthy foods, to spotting vision loss in your elderly parents the CNIB has tips on their website to help you prevent vision loss.  For those considering vision correction surgery you should have a careful assessment by a qualified provider and educate yourself about the risks and benefits of the different options available.

The CNIB has been dedicated to education about vision loss and support for people living with vision loss since 1918.
