Going Blind

Medicine Hat Public Library and the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB) present Going Blind, a film about glaucoma and vision loss on Saturday, October 29 at 2.00 pm. The film will be shown in the Theatre at Medicine Hat Public Library.

When American film maker Joseph Lovett developed glaucoma and subsequent vision loss, he decided to examine the different causes of vision loss, both from a medical and an emotional point of view. His film documents the experiences of a number of people: a young Iraq war vet, an art teacher, an architect and others who are coming to terms with their vision loss.

The Library and the CNIB invite those who may be losing their vision, along with their friends and family, to view this film and learn more about this devastating disease. For more information about the film, go to

Admission is free and refreshments will be served following the film showing.
