Some stats are hard to look past.

• 253 million people worldwide are visually impaired
• 36 million are blind
• 217 million have moderate or severe vision impairment
• 1.2 billion people need glasses
• >75% of vision impairment is avoidable
• 89% visually impaired people live in less developed countries

That's why this year's #WorldSightDay is about #EyeCareEverywhere – everyone, everywhere should have access to quality eye care.
