World Sight Day

World Sight Day is on Thursday 13 October 2022 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.​

FOR WORLD SIGHT DAY 2022, EVERYONE COUNTS

The World Health Organization’s World Report on Vision and the UN Resolution on Vision have cemented eye health as critical to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. However, change doesn’t just happen in high office.​

We are calling on our global partners and members to help show the world how important it is to #LoveYourEyes.​

From pledging to help reach our five million sight test goal to asking your networks and ambassadors to post selfies in #LoveYourEyes heart glasses, you are reminding everyone to take care of their eyes.​

Pledge your sight test

We want to get over 5 million sight tests pledged by World Sight Day to raise awareness and drive demand.

If you are an individual, you can pledge to get your sight tested or pledge to take better care of your eyes. If you are an eye care professional or organisation, you can pledge all the tests you carry out in the month leading up to World Sight Day.​

Make A Pledge

OUR AIM IS TO GET 5 MILLION EYE TESTS PLEDGED GLOBALLY BY WORLD SIGHT DAY, TO HELP THE WHOLE WORLD #LoveYourEyes

JOIN US AND HELP US REACH OUR GOAL!

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 2021, the #LoveYourEyes campaign returns for World Sight Day 2022. 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.

We are excited for you and your organisation to get involved.
