Vision Quest

Vision Quest 2017

At the Foundation Fighting Blindness (FFB), we are motivated by a singular goal: develop new treatments for blindness and vision loss. This goal fuels all of the research that we fund and everything that we do! Every year, we strive to share the latest breakthroughs in vision science directly with our supporters through our Vision Quest educational programming. In 2017, Vision Quest took on a variety of formats, from smaller lunch & learn sessions to larger symposiums, hosted in regions across Canada.

It was an incredible season of educational content, with Vision Quest coming to Vancouver (BC), Sudbury (ON), Timmins (ON), St. John’s (NL), Toronto (ON), Montreal (QC), and Calgary (AB).

Planning for 2018 is already underway, so stay tuned to this page for announcements!
