OGS Leads Global Coalition to Support World Sight Day Challenge

(Denver, CO): Global eye health and vision care are more important than ever in light of recent natural disasters including major hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis and their aftermath. As people deal with these and other health crises, leading North American optometric companies, networks, schools and practices are once again joining a coalition led by Optometry Giving Sight in support of World Sight Day (October 12, 2017) and the World Sight Day Challenge, which runs through October.

This is the 11th year of the Challenge, which encourages all members of the vision care community to make a donation or participate in a fundraising event to help fund sustainable eye health projects for people who are needlessly blind or vision impaired. These include support for projects that will help give sight and hope to more than 1 million children as part of the Our Children’s Vision campaign – and this year, in recognition of recent events, projects providing eye care to people affected by the hurricanes in our region.

Coalition members include ABB OPTICAL GROUP, Alcon Foundation, AllAboutVision.com®, Bausch + Lomb, CooperVision, Essilor, EyePromise, FYidoctors, Vision Source®, VSP Global® and ZEISS Vision.

Another 45 companies are participating in the Challenge (see breakout for full list) plus 21 Schools of Optometry. More companies, networks and practices are signing up every day.

“If everyone does just one thing in support of the Challenge we can make a huge difference in the lives of millions.”

For more information about the World Sight Day Challenge, or to make your donation today, please visit givingsight.org  or call +1 403-670-2619.
