Vision Health Month

Vision Health Month provides a platform to highlight the importance of vision care for all Canadians. One in nine Canadians develop irreversible vision loss by the age of 65 years, with some 2 million at risk of retinal diseases. Through the Eye See You Biosimilars in Ophthalmology Program, the International Federation on Ageing is committed to advocating for education, access and equity in policies affecting vision health while bringing attention to urgent issues that impact the lives of older Canadians.
