The World Sight Day Challenge is running throughout October, which means there is still time to get your practice and your patients involved.
Optometry Giving Sight has set itself several goals this year. One is to help provide access to vision care for one million children.
According to Elise Pocknee-Clem from Eyre Eye Centre, who has participated in the World Sight Day Challenge for many years, this is the perfect opportunity to support their effort. “By supporting Optometry Giving Sight and The World Sight Day Challenge we can give back to our global community and help to ensure that everyone has access to the eye care we all deserve. On top of that, our patients and staff have a blast joining in,” she said.
Join the hundreds of optometrists and practices around the country, that are taking part in the challenge, and help to make children’s vision count.
