World Sight Day is an annual day of awareness to focus global attention on blindness and vision impairment, and is on Thursday 14 October 2021.
This year’s World Sight Day theme is Love Your Eyes, and even though the COVID-19 pandemic is effecting all of us in different ways, it’s a great time to show our eyes some love.
We’re asking all Victorians to:

- Maintain your ongoing treatment if you have an existing eye condition.
