World Sight Day 2017

Book Appointment

Our team at QOC is incredibly proud to have raised an incredible $13,514.00 for the 2017 World Sight Day Challenge, which is the most any optometry practice has ever raised for the challenge in Canada and anywhere in the world!

An amazing $7400 was raised from patients and the remaining from the doctors and staff.

Because of this, QOC received two of three Canadian stipend prizes for the 2017 Challenge – one for the highest raised through fundraising alone, and one for the highest total raised.

Thank you to all of our patients who continue to support this wonderful cause year after year.

Stay tuned for pictures of our office manager, Terri, who will be traveling with the Optometry Giving Sight team on an eye mission to Tanzania in September, 2018.
