Lions World Sight Day – Focusing Attention on Preventing Blindness and Improving Sight

Lions Clubs International will officially mark World Sight Day in Mossman, Australia on October 10. International President Barry J. Palmer will lead the events, which will include vision screenings of school children and adults.

Lions around the world will mark World Sight Day with a variety of activities during the entire month of October.

Since 1998, Lions World Sight Day, held annually in October, has focused attention on eliminating preventable blindness and improving sight. On World Sight Day, Lions clubs around the world conduct special sight-related projects including:

  • Collecting eyeglasses.

  • Conducting vision and diabetes screenings.

  • Planning educational programs to inform their communities about the importance of eye health – and diseases such as diabetes that can impair sight.
