World Sight Day 2023

World Sight Day is on Thursday, 12th October 2023, and we are focusing the world’s attention on the importance of eye care in the workplace.

Together, we will encourage employers to make eye health initiatives standard practice and promote eye health habits that will benefit the well-being, safety and productivity of millions of employees.

The first step is prioritising your own eye health, and we invite you to pledge to #LoveYourEyes. The next step is motivating the world’s employers to provide quality eye care to their employees. From factory floors and office buildings to staff rooms and studios, let’s ensure that eye care is available, accessible and affordable to all.
