World Sight Day 2023

Historical Background

The origins of World Sight Day can be traced back to October 8, 1984, when the Lions Club Foundation inaugurated this day of awareness. Over the years, it has evolved into a collaborative endeavor, spearheaded by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IABP), encompassing NGOs, eye care organizations, and hospitals worldwide. This united effort was aimed at promoting awareness about the importance of eye care and the prevention of blindness.


World Sight Day carries significant weight in the context of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It makes substantial contributions to goals related to education, employment, quality of life, and poverty alleviation. This day serves as a reminder of the pivotal role that vision plays in the overall well-being of both individuals and communities. Numerous organizations actively engage in advocating for enhanced access to eye care services on a global scale.


The theme for World Sight Day 2023, 'Love Your Eyes at Work,' resonates deeply in our fast-paced, digital era, where we subject our eyes to prolonged screen time and demanding work schedules. This theme underscores the importance of nurturing our eyes as we navigate the challenges presented by the contemporary workplace.
