Eye Bank Celebrates World Sight Day!

The Eye Bank Foundation of the Philippines joins the international community in celebrating the World Sight Day!

The World Sight Day is an annual day of awareness held on the second Thursday of October to focus global attention on blindness and vision impairment.

1 billion people around the world have a preventable vision impairment or one that has yet to be addressed. Reduced or absent eyesight can have major and long-lasting effects on all aspects of life, including daily personal activities, interacting with the community, school and work opportunities and the ability to access public services.

As it turns Silver this October, the Eye Bank remains committed in its mission to transform lives through sight restoration. Eye Bank likewise hopes that many others will support the advocacy of cornea and eye tissue donation. #EyeBankPH25 #PartnersInSight #HopeInSight #WorldSightDay
