Krembil Magazine feature​d in The Globe & Mail

In Canada, there are approximately 1.5 million people living with sight loss, and 5.5 million more have been diagnosed with an eye disease that could lead to sight loss or blindness. It’s known that early intervention can lead to significantly better outcomes and that is what motivates the scientists and clinicians who work at the Donald K. Johnson Eye Institute, who are working to improve vision care for millions of Canadians through research, discovery and advancements in clinical care. The magazine is now available online.
