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.

Get Involved

Love Your Eyes at Work

This World Sight Day, our focus is on helping people understand the importance of protecting their vision in the workplace and calling on business leaders to prioritise the eye health of workers, everywhere.

With the help of our global partners and members, we aim to show the world how important it is to #LoveYourEyes.

This is our opportunity to motivate employers everywhere to implement change.

As an individual, we invite you to pledge your own sight test and add your name to the millions of others who are doing the same.

If you represent an organisation or are an eye care professional we encourage you to pledge all of the sight tests you will carry out leading up to World Sight Day 2023.
