World
Sight Day

Essilor, whose mission is to improve
lives by improving sight,
has launched a series of events
around the world to raise
public awareness of the 
importance of good vision.

Raising
Sight Awareness

World Sight Day serves as an opportunity to raise public awareness about the importance of good vision.

Every year the World Health Organization (WHO) promotes World Sight Day in an effort to draw global attention to blindness, visual impairment and rehabilitation of the visually impaired. Happening this year on October 9th, World Sight Day serves as an opportunity to raise public awareness about the importance of good vision through regular eye exams and effective vision correction.

It is estimated that 2.5 billion people around the world are suffering from uncorrected vision problems. The more awareness that is raised around the importance of vision care can drastically cut down these statistics. In fact, 80% of those visions problems can be prevented or easily treated. An easy way to help spread the word is by communicating the importance of healthy vision to the world.
