Transitions Optical is officially kicking off its Great Canadian Sights Tour, and will hit the road to educate thousands of consumers about their eye health and the ability to see life’s everyday moments through a series of events at the Top Five Sights to See in Canada.

The event to celebrate the sight of the Canadian Rockies is still to be announced.

Each of the stops will feature appearances by Transitions Optical’s OSS campaign ambassadors Andi Petrillo, a renowned Canadian hockey broadcaster; and Melanie Turgeon, a former Olympian and world champion skier.

Attendees will be encouraged to celebrate their sight by taking photos against a background featuring the local winning sight, speaking with an eyecare professional about their eye health and how to enhance their vision, and viewing demonstrations of Transitions Optical’s family of products.

Attendees at each stop can also enter to win a camera so they can capture the sights that are special in their lives.

Throughout the tour, consumers and eyecare professionals can visit to enter the Sight of the Day Photo Contest for a chance to win various sightseeing prizes, including the Ultimate Sightseeing Dream Vacation.

A counter card is available to help eyecare professionals promote the OSS program and photo contest to their patients, and can be ordered by visiting or contacting Transitions Optical Customer Service at 1-877-254-2590 or
