Get Involved with the Optometry Clinics

As our population ages, more and more Canadians will experience conditions that threaten their sight. You can ensure more people maintain healthy vision by:

  • sharing your experience with your own eye conditions;
  • allowing us to expand our knowledge of sight-threatening diseases; and
  • investing in programs that support eye and vision care

Share your experience

Share you experience with us by completing our patient experience survey. If you are a patient at a Low Vision Clinic, you can volunteer on the Patient Advisory Board. Please call the Low Vision Clinic at 519-888-4708 to learn more.

Volunteer in Research

Participation in research studies can lead to new or improved treatments while benefitting participants with advanced care. To learn more about how you can get involved in cutting-edge research studies, please visit the Volunteer in Research webpage.
