World Sight Day; October 12th

Every year, the second Thursday of October marks a crucial occasion on the global calendar – World Sight Day. This day is dedicated to raising awareness about vision impairment and blindness.

This year, the global community is called upon to prioritize eye health, fostering accessible and inclusive eye care services for everyone.

Together, the global eye care sector aims to 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. From factory floors and office buildings to staff rooms and studios, let’s ensure that eye care is available, accessible and affordable to all.

Themed #LoveYourEyes, this global initiative is organised by the International Agency for Prevention of Blindness. In collaboration with the International Labour Organization (ILO), they have produced a new report on Eye Health and the World of Work, drawing attention to healthy vision as being integral to safety and productivity at work.
