World Sight Day


Today is World Sight Day. The call to action for 2015 is “Eye care for all

IAPB’s website says, “This year, 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?”

Information on the event seems very focused on what people in the industry can do. I think that those of us in the general public could help support the aim of today by donating to an organisation like The Fred Hollows Foundation or to Lions and select ‘sight’ in the drop-down.
