Happy world sight day!

October 10, 2013

Happy world sight day! Acting CEO, Jenni Gratton-Vaughan and Board Chair, Jan Boxall celebrate World Sight Day!

Today is World Sight Day, an annual day of awareness to focus global attention on blindness and vision impairment.

The international theme for World Sight Day 2013 is universal eye health, with a call to action: Get your eyes tested.

In Australia 75 per cent of blindness and vision loss is preventable or treatable. Ensuring all Australians get their eyes tested is key to helping everyone protect and preserve their sight.

Have you had your eyes tested?
