World Sight Day 2015
We here at Young Eyes care about protecting your vision; we also care about people around the world who lack access to quality vision care. Because of this, our practice will participate in the World Sight Day Challenge this year on Thursday October 8 2015.
Now in its 9th year, the World Sight Day Challenge is the largest annual global fundraising campaign to address avoidable blindness caused by uncorrected refractive error – simply the need for an eye exam and glasses. The campaign is run by global charity, Optometry Giving Sight.
There are more than 600 million people in the world who are blind or vision impaired because they do not have access to an eye exam or glasses.
Preventable blindness is a solvable problem and we are proud to help give better vision to those in need. Most people are surprised to learn that for as little as $5 someone living in an underserved community can be provided with an eye exam and a pair of glasses to transform their lives. Everyone can make a huge difference and we are thrilled to be contributing to Optometry Giving Sight.
On World Sight Day October 8, Young Eyes will donate all eye exam fees for the day.
The campaign’s goal is to raise $1 million globally in 2015. We are thrilled to be contributing towards this goal and invite you to join us in making a donation at our office or at www.givingsight.org
