The World Health Organization’s World Report on Vision and the UN Resolution on Vision have cemented eye health as critical to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. However, change doesn’t just happen in high office.​

WHO is calling on global partners and members to help show the world how important it is to #LoveYourEyes.​

From pledging to help reach a five million sight test goal to asking our networks and ambassadors to post selfies in #LoveYourEyes heart glasses, we are reminding everyone to take care of their eyes.​

When was the last time you got your eyesight checked? Over 3.5 million people pledged to get their eyesight checked on World Sight Day 2022. Make sure that EVERYONE COUNTS in 2022 and pledge to #LoveYourEyes to help us towards our 5 million target!
