Nova Oculus is in Full Support of MP Judy Sgro and her Bill, C-284.
Bill C-284, if passed, commits the Canadian government to a national strategy dedicated to improved access to eye care and rehabilitation services, a strategy that also envisions the creation of a vision desk at the Public Health Agency of Canada and investments in research to find new treatments to prevent and stop blindness.
This enactment provides for the development of a national strategy to support the prevention and treatment of eye disease to ensure better health outcomes for Canadians.
It also designates the month of February as “Age-Related Macular Degeneration Month”.
