Join us in raising funds to bring one of ocular medicine’s newest breakthroughs, the Retinal Imager, to
Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, Israel. This new technology would expand the capabilities of
the hospital’s Ophthalmology Department.

How much does it cost?
The price for one retinal imager is $333,000 CDN.
