On July 6, the IAPB launched its World Sight Day campaign, after which every major eye care non-governmental organisation in the world contributes to making the day more efficient. On a large scale, various eye care measures including incentives for eye examination are advised.

The goal is to remind the world that everyone matters, to emphasise the necessity of taking care of our own eye health, and to highlight the work that still needs to be done to ensure that everyone has access to eye care.

The theme for this year is 'Love Your Eyes.'

The theme emphasises the importance of each eye and, as a result, helps to raise awareness about eye care and treatment.
