World Sight day is an annual day of awareness held on Thursday, October 11, 2018, to focus global attention on blindness and vision impairment. This year's call to action is Eye Care Everywhere.
Prevent Blindness Wisconsin is taking the World Sight Day challenge to raise awareness for eye care throughout Wisconsin and needs your help!
You can help provide healthy vision for school success and a lifetime by:
Although 1 in 4 school-aged children and 1 in 20 preschool-aged children have a vision problem, 86% of children never receive an eye exam before entering school. Prevent Blindness Wisconsin's free Certified Vision Screenings are a critical first step in ensuring children are on the path to healthy vision for a lifetime.
Thank you for supporting our vision for each Wisconsin resident to have healthy vision for a lifetime!
