Each year, Vision 2020 Australia uses World Sight Day to talk about the importance of eye health and vision care. World Sight Day takes place on Thursday 12 October this year.
The majority of eye conditions have no symptoms or pain in the early stages. Regular eye examinations are essential to ensure early detection and treatment of many eye conditions to prevent avoidable blindness and vision loss.
This year, Vision 2020 Australia will be using social media and the #WorldSightDayAU hashtag to share information about eye health and vision care, ensuring vision counts through highlighting the important work of the sector and our members.
