World Sight Day

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

We are calling on the sector to join us to help people prioritise their own eye health and leaders to ensure eye care is accessible, inclusive and affordable to everyone, everywhere.​

Our aim was to see 5 million eye tests pledged globally by World Sight Day, to help the whole world #LOVEYOUREYES.

We beat our target by 1.8million!

World Sight Day 2022

Love Your Eyes

Nearly everyone on the planet will experience an eye health issue in their lifetime, however, more than a billion people worldwide do not have access to the services they need to see clearly. ​ ​

The Love Your Eyes campaign encourages individuals to prioritise their own eye health whilst advocating for accessible, affordable and available eye care the world over. ​

Following a hugely successful World Sight Day 2022, the #LoveYourEyes campaign returns for World Sight Day 2023. Working together we are hoping to have five million sight tests pledged, host screenings in the most influential buildings in the world and show the world how to #LoveYourEyes with our fun and engaging social assets.
