Vision Health Month 

Eyes are for life

Your eyes are for life – and unless you take care of them, you could be at risk of losing a lifetime of sight and so much more.

That's why each May, we invite all Canadians to join us in celebrating Vision Health Month – an annual nationwide awareness campaign designed to educate Canadians about their vision health and help eliminate avoidable sight loss across the country.

Throughout the month, CNIB and our partners, Doctors of Optometry Canada, call on all Canadians to do one simple thing that could save their sight: get an eye exam from a Doctor of Optometry.​

Thank you for another great Vision Health Month!​

Because of support from thousands of people across the country, Vision Health Month 2013 was a fantastic success – raising much-needed awareness about vision health, eye disease and how we can help protect ourselves from vision loss.

CNIB sends a huge “thank you” to our Vision Health Month partner, Doctors of Optometry Canada, for joining us in this year’s campaign – as well as hundreds of Doctors of Optometry across the country who donated $2 to CNIB for every eye exam they conducted in May.

We are also proud to acknowledge the support of national retail supporter Loblaw Optical and media partner Postmedia Inc. for Vision Health Month 2013. ​

​Keep your vision health in check

The 2013 Vision Health Month campaign may have come to an end, but it’s important to take care of your eyes year-round, so be sure to visit your Doctor of Optometry regularly throughout the year.
