World Sight Day 2015

World Sight Day 2015 is taking place on 8 October 2015. And this year’s call to action of the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB) is “Eye care for all”. IAPB urges everybody to focus on everybody who needs eye care services. In order to draw attention to the great unmet need in eye care services, IAPB is challenging amateur and professional photographers around the world to join in on highlighting the impact of eye health in people’s lives, by taking part in an International Photography Competition themed ‘Eye care for all’.
The IAPB is inviting everybody to send them pictures – professional shots, amateur compositions, instagrams or flickr – with the hashtag, #Eyecareforall by 8 October 2015. In Italy CDV – Commissione Difesa Vista is setting off on a new “Sight Tour” – an awareness-raising initiative promoted in Italy in collaboration with Assogruppi Ottica, Federottica and Vision+Onlus and with the support of Mido.
