World Sight Day 2018

October 12

World Sight Day is an important advocacy and communications event on the eye health calendar. It is a great time to engage with a wider audience – a patient’s family, those who seldom get an eye exam, diabetics – and showcase why eye health needs everybody’s attention.

World Sight Day 2018 will be on 12 October 2018. This year’s call to action:

Stronger Together

IAPB urges you to focus on all the stakeholders who are important for successful delivery eye care. Think of all the groups of people who engage with eye care: ophthalmologists, optometrists, ophthalmic nurses, donors, patients, carers, the wider family. Clearly, our successes are made possible by the fact that we work together, and so, what can be a better theme for our continued success? The more groups we bring together–the diabetic community, the irreparably blind, vulnerable groups, including those with other disabilities–the stronger we become.

This World Sight Day, let’s celebrate our partnerships and friendships.
