WORLD SIGHT DAY 2016
October 13, 2016
World Sight Day (WSD) is a global initiative to bring awareness to prevent blindness across the world. This annual day of awareness is held on the second Thursday of October each year and is headed by the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB).
Eye Care For All
Every year Eye Columbus actively promotes World Sight Day here in Columbus Ohio. This year we have partnered with friends in the community to bring awareness of Eye Care For All and the importance of annual Lifestyle Eye Exams for everyone.
There are approximately 285 million people in the world living with blindness or low vision. However, 80% of blindness is preventable.
Help end preventable blindness by sharing the message of #EyecareForAll this World Sight Day
