World Sight Day is the most important advocacy and communications event on the eye health calendar. The theme of 2018 World Sight Day is 'Eye Care Everywhere'.
We know now that 1.2 billion people don’t have access to glasses. Over 3 out of 4 (75%) of the world’s vision impaired are avoidably so. What can be done to arrest this unconscionable fact?

This World Sight Day, let’s find the solutions to ensure that everyone, everywhere has access to sight.
