The focus of this year’s World Sight Day is ‘Make Vision Count’ with the aim to raise as much public awareness about blindness and vision impairment as possible and influence governments around the world to designate funds to prevention programmes.
Unless you’ve been directly affected by vision problems, or know someone that has, it can be difficult to understand the devastating effects visual impairment can have. And with a staggering 285 million people across the globe are blind or visually impaired – it’s a key issue in public health that we need to speak about more often.
Important statistics from World Sight Day:
We’re keen to support World Sight Day on October 12th, at a time where people across the globe can focus on blindness and visual impairment. At Visualase, we think the first step to eye health is through having an eye examination, so that we can truly assess your eyes and determine the best laser eye treatment for you.
The team at Visualase laser eye surgery clinic want to ensure all their patients have the knowledge they need to ensure their eyes remain as healthy as possible, and also support various eye health charities by donating no longer needed glasses that can be recycled to raise funds, so if you have any unwanted specs feel free to bring them into the clinic in Bolton, click here for more information.
