Your gift has impact

Thanks to the generosity and commitment of our dedicated supporters, the Foundation Fighting Blindness has invested $25 million into eye research at universities and hospitals across the country.

This research has resulted in the identification of many of the underlying causes of retinal disease, and the creation of more accurate diagnostic tests. It is a very exciting time to be supporting vision research in Canada, as we are now on the cusp of ground-breaking discoveries in treatment.
