The Fighting Blindness Canada Podcast
Newly launched in April 2023!
The Fighting Blindness Canada Podcast brings you the latest in vision health information.
Featuring interviews with researchers and physicians who focus on the treatment and prevention of eye diseases, we go behind the scenes to learn about their research and why they are passionate about what they do. In each episode, we also ask members of the vision loss community how living with vision loss affects them.
