2021 Wold Sight Day.

October 14, 2021, is World Sight Day, an annual day of awareness to focus global attention on blindness and vision impairment. This year awareness is more important than ever as recently researchers have found a rise in nearsightedness in children during home confinement due to the pandemic. To help you access important educational information, we’ve put together a collection of resources that can be used individually. Or, you can download them all with one click at the bottom of this page. Be sure to use the hashtags #WorldSightDay and #LoveYourEyes and tag MyMyopia on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn so we can amplify your efforts.

Watch our Myopia Explained Video, and learn everything you need to know about myopia in under three minutes.
