Our vision is priceless! However, we often take it for granted. Imagine not being able to see a loved one’s face, read a book, or complete daily living activities like driving a car. According to the World Health Organization, an estimated 2.2 billion people around the world have vision impairment or blindness. More than half of these cases could have been prevented or have not yet been treated.
October 14th is World Sight Day, an international day of awareness held every October to focus attention on the global issue of eye health. This year for World Sight Day, we are asking you to UNITE FOR SIGHT with us to raise awareness about the importance of vision health, raise funds to provide the gift of clearer sight to children and adults and need here in Northeast Florida, and to prevent vision loss by keeping an eye on your vision health.
