World Sight Day

World Sight Day focuses the world’s attention on the importance of eye care for all.​

​In 2024, together, we will inspire children to love their eyes and give parents, caregivers and schools the information they need to prioritise child eye health!​

We know that vision impairment in children can severely impact education outcomes, contributing to lower socio-economic potential. Research tells us that children having access to, and being prescribed spectacles reduces their failing rates by 44%. It is knowledge like this that has led us to making this World Sight Day, one for children around the world. ​

As part of the Love Your Eyes campaign, World Sight Day is an important moment to advocate for accessible, available and affordable eye care for everyone by 2030. Join us!​

Campaign details coming soon.
