Dr. Carla Eamon of Dr. C.L. Eamon Optometrist is taking part in the World Sight Day Challenge during October to help give the gift of vision to people in under-served communities around the world.

Now in its 15th year, the World Sight Day Challenge is Optometry Giving Sight’s largest annual fundraising campaign to address avoid- able blindness caused by uncorrected refractive error – simply the need for an eye exam and glasses.

On World Sight Day (October 14), Dr. Eamon will hold a celebration to raise funds to help the more than 1.1 billion people who are unnecessarily blind or vision impaired simply because they don’t have access to an eye exam and a pair of glasses. This year’s call to action is Love Your Eyes.

“I have supported Optometry Giving Sight for 15 years,” said Dr. Eamon. “Preventable blindness is a solvable problem and we are proud to help give better vision to those in need. Everyone can make a difference and we are thrilled to be contributing to universal eye health.”

Participating is easy – simply make a donation between now and the end of October.

This year’s campaign will help support projects similar to past initiatives such as:

  • providing vision screenings and glasses to school aged children in the Philippines, Mexico and El Salvador, and
  • funding equipment and increased clinical services to underserved communities and at-risk populations in Toronto and Vancouver.

We look forward to your support as we help to raise urgently needed funds for this critical cause.
