Importance of Diabetes Research
Raising awareness for diabetes is extremely important because there are currently about 11 million Canadians living with diabetes or prediabetes and every three minutes, another Canadian is diagnosed. Diabetes is a leading cause for vision problems in Canadians over 50 including blindness, blurred vision, light halos and watery eyes.

Scheduling regular eye exams can help detect diabetes and once you’ve been diagnosed, it’s important to continue to see an eye doctor to ensure that there aren’t significant changes in your vision. Learn more about how diabetes affects vision.

Diabetes Canada is leading the fight against diabetes in three distinct ways.

  1. Helping those already diagnosed to live healthy lives.
  2. Working to prevent the onset and consequences of diabetes.
  3. Discovering a cure.

This esteemed non-profit organization has made great strides in improving the lives of Canadians suffering from diabetes and they’re working hard to find a cure. We’re honoured to be partnering with them to raise money for such a worthwhile cause.
