“Love Your Eyes:” World Sight Day is October 13, 2022

As noted in a previous Bulletin, October 13, 2022 marks the celebration of World Sight Day, with the theme of “Love Your Eyes” underscoring the need for eye care for everyone. Each year the second Thursday of October is celebrated as World Sight Day, a UN observance although not a public holiday in any nation. The World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB), as well as Lions Clubs have actively promoted the occasion for many years. IAPB urges people to pledge to take better care of their eyes and asks eye care professionals and organizations to conduct eye tests and care for patients.
