World Sight Day 2013: Get Your Eyes Tested

World Sight Day 2013 will focus on the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) new action plan to tackle preventable blindness and low vision across the globe between 2014 and 2019.

While approximately 90% of the world’s visually impaired individuals live in developing countries, infectious disease is not the cause – the vast majority of cases are the result of uncorrected refractive errors like myopia (short-sightedness), hyperopia (long-sightedness) or astigmatism. The eye examinations and corrective eyewear those located in developed countries can take for granted are often enough to greatly improve the eyesight – and quality of life – of many people currently struggling with low vision.

The main call to action behind this year’s World Sight Day is ‘Get Your Eyes Tested’. WHO hopes this message will not only help to limit preventable vision loss caused by the before-mentioned refractive errors, but also increase early detection of other problems that can lead to visual impairment, like cataracts and diabetes too.
