Focusing on knowledge... to see more clearly!


Prior to the 1980s, Quebec was the poor cousin when it came to eyecare. For example, Quebeckers often had to go to Ontario or the United States for a simple cataract operation. But since 1979, when the focus was placed on basic research and eye disease, the picture of eyecare in Quebec has completely changed. Knowledge has therefore been beneficial for everyone’s visual health and enriching for all Quebec researchers.
