World Sight Day Thursday, 11 October – The most important advocacy and communications event on the eye health calendar. It is a great time to engage with the world around us – a patient’s family, those who seldom get an eye exam, diabetics. This year, let us draw attention to eye care issues so that everyone, everywhere has access to good eye health. Plan for an eye examination. Look around in your family, especially for those who are vulnerable: young, school-going children, the elderly, those with diabetes.
