World Sight Day
World Sight Day is a global event to focus attention on blindness and vision impairment. It is observed on the second Thursday of October each year.
As part of the ‘Journée Mondiale de la Vue’ initiative, free eye screening and testing will take place on October 13th, 2016 in the Place de la Victoire in Perpignan from 9h to 17h. Several opticians around the region will also offer free eye tests.
Tests will be performed by opticians and ophthalmologists.
The object is to help people to detect diseases such as AMD, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy (damage to the retina caused by complications of diabetes, which can eventually lead to blindness).
