The Lighthouse has partnered with the Grady Eye Clinic, Prevent Blindness Georgia, Vision 2020 – Georgia Chapter, the Emory Eye Center, and the Georgia Eye Bank to make this event available to adults and children of all ages in and around metro Atlanta. It’s an excellent (and did we mention free?) opportunity to get your family’s vision checked and learn more about the importance of routine eye care. We hope to see you there!
From the International Association to Prevent Blindness‘ website:
World Sight Day (WSD) is an annual day of awareness held on the second Thursday of October, to focus global attention on blindness and vision impairment. World Sight Day 2017 is on 12 October 2017.
2017 is the fifth year of the WHO Global Action Plan and IAPB encourages our members and partners to continue with our rolling theme: Universal Eye Health
This year, the ‘Call to Action’ for World Sight Day is: Make Vision Count
WSD is co-ordinated by IAPB under the VISION 2020 Global Initiative. The theme, and certain core materials are generated by IAPB. All events are organised independently by members and supporter organisations.
