World Sight Day – 11th Oct 2018

World Sight Day – 11th Oct 2018

World Sight Day is universally remembered on the second Thursday of October every year

Representing the vision care industry as media since the last 18 years, this day becomes a whole lot more important for us. There are a lot of organisations that do a lot of work throughout the year to help people across the world achieve good vision. The last year has seen a lot of initiatives from organisations like Essilor, Zeiss, Johnson & Johnson and others that would help in the process of not just bettering vision but eradication of blindness.

With a large section of people in the underdeveloped parts of the world suffering from partial or complete blindness, the work that these organisations big and small have been putting in to help people improve their quality of life, should be applauded. This World Sight Day, let’s applaud these organisations for the work they’ve done.

We have added links below to some of the initiatives that some organisations have announced on their website. Of course there will be a lot of unsung heroes that we could not list below. Please do email us at visionplusmag@fourplusmedia.com and we will try our best to acknowledge and appreciate their efforts too.
