About World Sight Day

World Sight Day is on Thursday 12 October 2023 and is the opportunity to focus the world’s attention on the importance of eye care.

This year, we are calling on the sector to join us to help people prioritise their eye health, and calling on business leaders to ensure eye care is accessible, inclusive and available to workers everywhere.

Learn how to join the millions of others globally who will #LoveYourEyes this October.

World Sight Day

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 10 million sight tests pledged, host screenings in workplaces around the world and show the world how to #LoveYourEyes with our fun and engaging social assets.

OUR ASK IS SIMPLE – #LoveYourEyes.

We want eye health to be accessible, available, and affordable for everyone by 2030. Our Love Your Eyes campaign calls on governments and businesses to make this a reality.

World Sight Day is an important part of the Love Your Eyes campaign and an opportunity to educate the public, governments, and business leaders on the importance of eye health.

Together we must work to make sure eye health receives the global political, health, and development focus it needs and deserves. We will work to make eye health accessible, available, and affordable to everyone by 2030.
