World Sight Day 2019


World Sight Day – the most important advocacy and communications day in the eye health calendar – is on October 10, 2019. When was the last time you got an eye exam? Your family, friends and colleagues? This World Sight Day, let’s pledge to take an eye exam – and encourage others to do the same! We have the data and evidence. We also have projections into the future – an ageing world population, myopia and diabetic retinopathy are set to increase vision impairment in the coming decades.

What’s the first thing you can do? Plan for an eye examination. Look around in your family, especially for those who are vulnerable: young, school-going children, the elderly, those with diabetes.

This World Sight Day, let’s find the solutions to ensure that everyone, everywhere has access to sight. Let’s pledge to make Vision First!
