CNIB’s research helps prevent vision loss and improve the lives of people it affects.

Because knowledge is empowering

CNIB has a longstanding record of conducting vital, world-class research focused on better serving and improving the quality of life for people with vision loss – studying everything from practical vision loss needs to rehabilitation outcomes to social policy.  

We also fund cutting-edge medical research in some of the foremost universities across the country, aimed at improving our understanding of how to prevent, diagnose and treat eye disease.

Day by day, this research is enabling people who are blind and partially sighted to lead independent, fulfilling lives.

Here, you’ll find information on the research we’re funding, as well as the research we conduct ourselves at CNIB. You’ll also get the most up-to-date findings about blindness and vision loss from around the world.
