Cary, NC – 670 million people around the world are blind or vision impaired simply because they don’t have access to an eye exam and a pair of glasses. You can help by getting your eyes examined on Thursday, October 13, 2011 – World Sight Day.

World Sight Day – October 13

Dwight Barnes at Cary Family Eye Care wrote to CaryCitizen about World Sight Day:

This event is designed to bring attention to the fact that many individuals in developing parts of the world are impaired by poor vision that could be prevented with eye exams and glasses. The trouble is that they don’t have access to eye care.

World Sight Day is an initiative that brings attention to the problem and raises money that is used to provide much needed eye care and glasses in these areas.

Cary Family Eye Care is participating in this event for the second year in a row by donating all exam fees on October 13th to World Sight Day. The practice, located in the Cary Park Town Center at the corner of Carpenter Fire Station and Green Level Church Road, is  collecting donations throughout the month of October from patients and anyone who wishes to contribute.
