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).

Make Vision Count

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 Make Vision Count 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 #MakeVisionCount this World Sight Day
