Spotlight on the Ophthalmology Department

Because sight is one of our most precious senses, this evening will honour the brilliant work of the CHUM’s ophthalmology department, led by Dr. Salim Lahoud. The only one of its kind in Quebec, the CHUM’s ophthalmology department is:

  • 110 professionals, including 35 dedicated ophthalmologists
  • 7,800 appointments and 10,120 surgical interventions annually
  • all ophthalmological subspecialties for adults
  • exceptional care including eye cancer treatment and corneal transplants
  • 25 world-class clinical and basic research projects

“The CHUM saved my sight! Dr. Dagher gave me a human cornea transplant. Two days later, the pain was gone. After months of suffering, I could see the future differently. To regain my sight, I had a cataract operation. And just like that, I went from darkness into light.” – Robert Collu, CHUM patient

Hymn to the Thousands of CHUM Patients
Your participation has a real impact on the lives of thousands of CHUM patients and on the entire population of Quebec. During this event, you’ll be joining opinion leaders, movers and shakers from the upper echelons of business, celebrated artists, and renowned physicians who care about our greatest asset: health. The last time this event was held, a record amount of $1.5 million was raised for the gynecology-oncology department. Thanks to your support, the CHUM is able to propel the research that takes place within its walls and place artificial intelligence at the heart of its innovations, in order to take action by practicing modern medicine to predict the course of a disease, prevent its onset, personalize treatments, and have patients be participants.

More opportunities to combine fun and generosity
A live auction will take place during the evening, and the silent auction is already available here!
