Vision Health Month

Vision Health MonthChanges in vision, like blurred or double vision, abnormal eye movements, or loss of vision, can be symptoms of brain tumours. Certain types of brain tumours may be detectable through an eye examination, although it depends on the tumour type and its location. In some cases, eye tests can even detect brain tumours before symptoms appear, underscoring the value of regular eye exams. Don’t wait to get your eyes checked!

Support Brain Tumour Research and Patient Programs

SupportMay is Leave a Legacy Month, a time to consider how you can make a lasting impact on the brain tumour community. By including Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada in your will or designating us as a beneficiary, you impact the lives of Canadians for years to come.
