World Sight Day

World Sight Day is an annual day of awareness to focus global attention on blindness and vision impairment, and is held on the second Thursday in October each year.

Established by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2000, World Sight Day is the main advocacy event for raising awareness about blindness and vision impairment for VISION 2020: The Right to Sight, a global initiative created by WHO and the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB).

This year World Sight Day will be on Thursday 8 October 2020 and Vision 2020 Australia will be using social media and the #WorldSightDayAU hashtag to share information about eye health and vision care, and highlight the important work of the sector and our members.
