Blindness Awareness on World Sight Day

blindnessWorld Sight Day, Thursday October 8th, is a global event for raising blindness and vision impairment awareness. The theme of World Sight Day 2020 is "Hope In Sight." The International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness wants to know when was the last time you had an eye exam? The IAPB writes:

"This World Sight Day, let's pledge to take an eye exam—and encourage others to do the same! We have the data and evidence. We also have projections into the future–an aging world population, myopia, and diabetic retinopathy are set to increase vision impairment in the coming decades."
