2018 Vision Quest Education Series Kicks Off in London (Videos)

Each year, Fighting Blindness Canada (FBC) holds several Vision Quest educational events across the country.

Our first Vision Quest of 2018 took place on April 28 in London, Ontario, where we were grateful to have Dr. Tom Sheidow volunteer his time and share his expertise with a crowd of more than 250 people.

We’re pleased to share the below video recordings of the following talks from this event:

1) Emerging Therapies for Blinding Eye Diseases by Dr. Mary Sunderland.

You can download Dr. Sunderland’s slides to follow along:

2) Key Updates About Age-Related Macular Degeneration by Dr. Tom Sheidow.

Stay tuned for Dr. Sheidow’s slides.

We recommend that you watch Dr. Sunderland’s video first as Dr. Sheidow references her talk during his presentation.
