May is Vision Health Month. This year we are turning the spotlight on the experience of blindness, told through the eyes of people living with vision loss.
Every day at CNIB, we see the amazing abilities and accomplishments of Canadians who are blind or partially sighted. We understand vision loss is not a barrier to a rich, full life.
While 1 in 3 Canadians know someone who is blind or partially sighted, the social stigma of vision loss can be profound. Learn more about the impact of this social stigma through our fully accessible infographic.
All month we'll be sharing stories of Canadians leading full, independent lives and, focusing on a different theme each week.
Week one: Parenting
Week two: Innovation and technology
Week three: Blindness and the arts
Week four: Active living and travel
Week five: Youth and the future of blindness
