SEEING BEYOND 2020

Too many Canadians aren’t getting the eye and vision care they need. With your help, we can change that.

The School of Optometry & Vision Science has been protecting vision in our community for more than 50 years. We offer Canada’s only English-language optometry program and our highly trained graduates serve communities nation-wide.

We run one of the country’s largest eye and vision care clinics. Health care providers across Ontario refer their patients to us for specialized treatment and vision rehabilitation programs. And our programs are supported and enhanced by award-winning vision research conducted right here at the School.

Now we want to harness our strengths in clinical care, research and optometric education to create the Waterloo Eye Institute. Through this bold $35 million initiative, we’ll create a new system for eye and vision care. A system that gives patients — in our Region and beyond — the services they need, when they need them. 

Help make the Waterloo Eye Institute a reality.
