Jane Adams Exhibition Fundraiser
Thank you for supporting the Jane Adams Exhibition community fundraiser. Your gift will bring hope to more than half a million Canadians struggling with vision loss caused by retinal diseases.
Visionary Care at VGH:
- 600 patients visit the Eye Care Centre (ECC) at VGH each day
- Age-related macular degeneration is the leading cause of vision loss in Canada
- The Centre for Macular Research (CMR) is the research arm of the ECC
- CMR is the only facility in Canada focused on transformative bench-to-bedside research into retinal disorders and is leading the way in advancing our knowledge and translating scientific discoveries into treatments for British Columbians living with retinal diseases such as age-related macular degeneration and glaucoma.
