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