The Foundation Fighting Blindness
Almost Four Decades of Funding Groundbreaking Vision Research...
The Foundation Fighting Blindness is a
Canadian health charity that was
founded in 1974 by a small group of
families intent on finding a cure for the
disease robbing their children of sight.
At that time retinitis pigmentosa,
macular degeneration and other retinal
dystrophies were thought to be
incurable.
From these humble beginnings, The
Foundation Fighting Blindness has
grown to become Canada's leading
private supporter of retina research,
having given more than $23 million to
groundbreaking eye research taking
place at universities and hospitals
across the country.
Undaunted, these families enlisted the
support of Canada's leading medical
scientists and set to work raising
money for vision research.
• 1 in 9 Canadians will develop irreversible vision loss by age 65
• 60% of Canadian children with reading difficulties have undetected or uncorrected vision problems
• 2.5% of Canadians are classified as ‘visually impaired’
• 1 in every 3,500 Canadian children is born with an inherited retinal disease and an estimated 20,000 Canadians live with inherited
retinal diseases.
• One million Canadians currently have AMD causing some level of vision loss. An estimated 250,000 Canadians have an advanced form
of AMD, of which 64,000 are legally blind. These numbers are expected to double in the next 25 years
• $30.3 billion projected total annual cost of vision loss in Canada in 2032
