Whitsunday optometrists join global eye campaign
EYECARE Plus in Cannonvale joined in optometrists right across the country in the global campaign for universal eye health on World Sight Day last Thursday.
Local Eyecare Plus optometrists are taking part in the World Sight Challenge in October and have invited members of the community to come and have their eyes tested during the month. The challenge is the only fun- draising campaign in the world that specifically focuses on avoidable blindness caused by a lack of eye exams and glasses.
The local store is taking donations all month. They have donated the average October day of all eye exam fees to help the more than 600 million people who are blind or vision impaired simply because they have no access to an eye exam or glasses.
