World Sight Day

 

Organised by the LIONS CLUB

Since 1998, Lions World Sight Day, held annually in October, has focused attention on eliminating preventable blindness and improving sight. On World Sight Day, Lions clubs around the world conduct special sight-related projects including:

☛ Collecting eyeglasses.

☛ Conducting vision and diabetes screenings.

☛ Planning educational programs to inform their communities about the importance of eye health – and diseases such as diabetes that can impair sight.
