Today is World Sight Day, one of the most important days in the eye health calendar. According to CDC, approximately 12 million people 40 years and over in the United States have vision impairment, including 1 million who are blind, 3 million who have vision impairment after correction, and 8 million who have vision impairment due to uncorrected refractive error.
World Sight Day is an opportunity to raise awareness of blindness and vision problems as an international public health issue. This year’s theme is Hope in Sight, highlighting the importance of good sight for everyone around the world.
According to WHO, global demand for eye care is set to surge in the coming years due to factors like an ageing population and changes in lifestyle. It is predicted that a third more people will be aged over 60 by 2030. Increasingly sedentary lifestyles and less time spent outdoors can also cause the number of people with eye conditions to increase.
Eye conditions are incredibly common. By simply attending an eye examination every two years, you can increase your chance of detecting changes in your eye health quicker.
