World Sight Day is an important advocacy and communications opportunity for the eye health community. It is a great time to engage with a wider audience a patient’s family, those who seldom get an eye exam, diabetics and showcase why eye health needs everybody’s attention.
World Sight Day 2015 will be on 8 October 2015. This year’s call to action: Eye care for all This year, the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB) urges you to focus on everybody who needs eye care services – everybody. Think of all the groups of people who need eye care – especially the most vulnerable or the ones most in need. What can we do to bring eye care to them all? How can we ensure that access to eye care is not limited by gender or geographic location, or even financial status? Do remember, ‘Eye Health’ also includes rehabilitation and assistive services for those with irreversible vision loss.
This World Sight Day, let’s do something that will draw attention to the great unmet need in eye care services.
