From public lectures to signature celebrations such as Canada Day, we're honoured to invite our community to the University of Waterloo.

Dining in the dark for a good cause

On the evening of Friday, September 25, 2015 the University of Waterloo School of Optometry & Vision Science hosted its fourth annual Dining in the Dark fundraiser, with proceeds going towards Optometry Giving Sight - the only global initiative whose mission is to permanently end refractive error blindness in the world by funding long-term, sustainable eye and vision care projects.

Dining in the Dark

Imagine waking every morning without being able to see the sunrise. Taking a class but needing someone else to write your notes because you can’t see as far as the board.  Slowly losing your sight and knowing that in your country help is not available for you.

Over 600 million people are vision impaired because they do not receive proper eye care.  Optometry Giving Sight works to change all of that. It is a Global Initiative that seeks to provide diagnosis, care, and treatment for those with sight problems in developing countries.  On September 26, 2014, the University of Waterloo School of Optometry and Vision Science held its 3rd annual “Dining in the Dark” fundraiser as a part of this global initiative.
