TORONTO, April 30, 2015 /CNW/ - Join us for the launch of the first-ever National Vison Health Report commissioned by CNIB for Vision Health Month 2015.
The National Vision Health Report shows an unhealthy dichotomy between Canadians' strong belief in the importance of eye health, and what they actually know and do about it.
Findings from the report will be shared by representatives from the vision health community including CNIB, the Opticians Association of Canada (OAC), the Canadian Ophthalmological Society (COS) and the Canadian Association of Optometrists (CAO).
Date: Thursday, May 7, 2015
Time: 8 – 10 a.m.
The Bram and Bluma Appel Salon at the Toronto Reference Library
Asquith Ave, Toronto, ON M4W 2G8
