About World Sight Day
World Sight Day (WSD) is co-ordinated by the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB). WSD became an official IAPB event in the year 2000, and has been marked in many different ways in countries around the world each year since then.
WSD is the focal advocacy and PR event for IAPB and its members and partners each year, highlighting the fact that more than 75% of all blindness and moderate and severe vision impairment is avoidable. WSD provides a platform for organisations to encourage governments, corporations, institutions and individuals to actively support universal access to eye health
