May is Vision Health Month! Did you know that three out of four cases of vision loss are preventable—but only if they’re treated early? That’s why Fighting Blindness Canada is partnering with Bausch + Lomb Canada to raise awareness about vision loss and encourage Canadians to schedule regular comprehensive eye exams.

Over the month of May, Bausch + Lomb Canada will donate $1 to FBC for every time a post tagged #WhyEyeCare is shared on social media channels. We encourage you to share #WhyEyeCare posts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram over the month of May, and participate in the conversation about the importance of proactive vision care.
