World Sight Day Challenge

Join us by participating in our annual fall fundraising campaign – the World Sight Day Challenge. Whether you’re a member of the optical community or someone who values good vision, there are several ways that you can make a difference.

Over a billion people cannot see because they do not have access to eye care. World Sight Day is an annual day of awareness to focus global attention on blindness and vision impairment. Coordinated by the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness under the VISION 2020 Global Initiative, it is supported by eye health organizations around the world – including Optometry Giving Sight – and is included on the official World Health Organization (WHO) calendar.

The World Sight Day Challenge campaign, organized by Optometry Giving Sight, brings the global optometric community together annually to raise money and awareness to help get eye care to those in need. The goal is to ensure that no one is needlessly left without their sight.
