World Sight Day Challenge

2020 World Sight Day Challenge – September thru October / World Sight Day is October 8

The World Sight Day Challenge is our annual fall fundraising campaign. It brings the global optometric community together to raise money and awareness to help provide eye care to those in need. Over a billion people cannot see simply because they do not have access to eye care. The goal is to ensure that no one is needlessly left without their sight.

World Sight Day is October 8, 2020. This annual day of awareness is supported by eye health organizations around the world – including Optometry Giving Sight –  and draws global attention on blindness and vision impairment. This year’s Call to Action is Hope in Sight which will help those in need such as Claudia from Mexico.

Join us by participating today in the World Sight Day Challenge!  Whether you are a member of the optical community or someone who values good vision, there are several ways that you can make a difference!
