If you're an eye doctor...
In order for someone with vision loss to receive rehabilitation services from CNIB, they need to be referred to us by an eye doctor like you. Without knowing your patient’s vision status and functional needs, we can’t guide them appropriately to the CNIB services that can help them. That’s why your referral is so important.
Online referral form
If you are outside the province of Quebec, you can refer a patient to us using this online referral form – a safe, secure way for you to share your patient’s information with us online. If you prefer, you can also download a form and fax or mail it to us. Alternatively you can download our accessible long form. For more information about completing CNIB’s secure online referral form, refer to this video:

If you live anywhere else in Canada and would like to receive support from CNIB, please visit your eye doctor and ask him or her to send us a referral on your behalf. It’s important that we’re able to tailor the support we provide for you around your own unique needs, and that’s why it’s so important that we hear from your eye doctor.
If you don’t have an eye doctor, you can find one in your area using this online tool from the Canadian Association of Optometrists.
