We care about our patients and about protecting your vision; we are also concerned about people around the world who lack access to quality vision care. Because of this, our practice York Mills Eye Care will participate in the World Sight Day Challenge during October.
The World Sight Day Challenge is a campaign coordinated by Optometry Giving Sight to raise funds for projects that provide vision care, local training and infrastructure support for people who are blind or vision impaired simply because they don’t have access to an eye exam and a pair of glasses.
Our practice will raise funds for the World Sight Day Challenge by donating our eye exam fees on October 13.
Please join us in helping to give sight to people in need by scheduling your next appointment during October or just come in to make a donation and help more people like 18 year old Donglian from rural China.
Although Donglian’s blurred vision stopped her from seeing the blackboard, she hadn’t told her teacher as she didn’t want to make a fuss. Caring for her mentally ill father and working the family’s farmland for four hours each day before school, she couldn’t afford an eye exam.
Thanks to a visit from a team of newly trained local eye care professionals and a pair of glasses, Donglian now has the opportunity to fulfill the potential she has already shown in her young life.
