Peace Arch Hospital Foundation Projects: Help Fund a New Ophthalmology Microscope for Peace Arch Hospital

Help Fund a New Ophthalmology Microscope for Peace Arch Hospital

Donate Now to ensure Peace Arch Hospital is equipped to perform eye-care surgical procedures.

A better future within sight…

The Ophthalmology Microscope is a specialized piece of eye-care equipment that allows for surgeons to see more for better decision-making during retina, cataract, glaucoma, and corneal surgeries.

Our current Ophthalmology Microscope is outdated. It needs regular repairs and incurs frequent downtime. A new microscope will reduce wait times. And it will produce outstanding visualization of the eye for medical teams. That will help patient care – a lot!

In fact, more than 350,000 cataract surgeries alone are performed each year in Canada. And the number of cataract surgeries is rising every year, with the average age of the surgery patient falling.

The need is critical! Every dollar you give will get us closer to improving our ability to care for patients right here in your community. It will also help us prepare for the anticipated needs of our aging population.

"As an Ophthalmologist, I know the new Ophthalmology Microscope will help all of us in the hospital do a better job for the people we care for – people like you. These top-of-the-line scopes are now computerized machines that offer superb optics, enhanced illumination, and high-definition video recordings of the human eye.”
