13 October marks World Sight Day, which stimulates the eye health community to draw attention on a global level about Blindness and vision impairment. This year EU-Eye proudly teams up with the European Forum Against Blindness and the European Coalition for Vision on a campaign to raise awareness about preventable sight loss. Blindness and vision loss can be prevented or treated in at least 50% of cases, but screening and early diagnosis are key to make this happen.
As advocating with one collective voice is central to making eye health a priority for national governments and to improve vision awareness among the general population, EU-Eye encourages you to participate in this social media campaign. For further details on how to take part please click here:
