Today is World Sight Day and this year’s theme is Eye Care Everywhere. According to the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness 1.2 billion people don’t have access to eyewear and what’s more - over 75% of the world’s vision impairment is avoidable. While worldwide blindness and vision impairment has seen a slight decline, it’s not enough. 89% of people with vision impairment live in low or middle-income countries. The goal of #WorldSightDay is to promote #EyeCare Everywhere to find solutions to ensure that these populations have eye health awareness and access to eye care and eyesight.
