National Vision Health Report

CNIB's National Vision Health Report, commissioned for Vision Health Month 2015, explores public knowledge, behaviours and opinions relating to vision health. The survey is the first of its kind in Canada, and has identified gaps in Canadians’ knowledge as it relates to their vision health, and presents an unexpected contrast between our beliefs and our behaviours.

There are an estimated 5.5 million Canadians living with a vision-threatening eye disease, and many more who are at risk of developing one. Many of these Canadians don’t have basic knowledge about how to prevent vision loss, and are not taking actions that could save their sight.

CNIB acknowledges funding support for the National Vision Health Report from Bayer, Bausch + Lomb, Novartis and Alcon.
