Essilor Canada is proud to participate to the Écrans dans les  yeux (screens in the eyes) TV program, produced by the Eye Disease Foundation and  broadcast on the TVA network in Québec on March 14 and 28 at 1 p.m., as well as on  April 25 at 1:30 p.m. This program aims to give an accurate picture of the effects of screen  use on visual and general health, for children, teens and adults alike.  

The 30-minute TV program will feature three world-renowned experts:  

– Dr. Langis Michaud, OD : eye development, myopia and screen use  

– Prof. Patrick Rochette, PhD : screens, blue light and their effect on visual health  – Prof. Marc Hébert, PhD : screens and their impact on the biological clock  

Essilor invites all eyecare professionals to share this information within their network. As  screen time has greatly increased during the pandemic, it is likely that the visual health  status of Canadians has deteriorated. This TV program should help encourage Canadians to  take care of their visual health, starting with a regular eye exam.
