CNIB (Canadian National Institute for the Blind) VOLUNTEERS
Dr. Clark Hyde and Dr. Cory McClung have recognized that the local CNIB branch in Medicine Hat is a smaller service centre and it is not yet able to offer the full scope of services needed for our community. As such, Dr. Hyde and Dr. Cory volunteer at the CNIB twice each month to perform low vision assessments for those who are registered with the CNIB and who are in need of low vision assistance. Dr. Hyde and Dr. Cory have found great joy in using their professional backgrounds to serve the community in this regard.

According to The World Health Organization, 153 million people have uncorrected refractive errors.
You can either drop them off in store, or you can mail them to…

Dr. Clark Hyde regularly visits local schools to present creative and interactive information and experiments about light, eyes, optical illusions, and much more.
