World Sight Day 2021 #loveyoureyes
More than a billion people worldwide do not have access to eye care services.
The International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB) aims to address the bigger picture at the country and global level. This year’s theme focuses on personal responsibility for our own eye health. #LoveYourEyes is all about being aware of your own eye health and preventing avoidable blindness.
Surgitrac Instruments message on #worldsightday2021 is that if you are able to, get a sight test or recommend others do the same.
In the UK the #NHS recommends an eye test every two years, but over a third of people are put off eye tests due to concerns about cost and two in three parents have never taken their child for a test.
