Alcon is pleased to offer resources in honor of World Sight Day, a day dedicated to heightening global attention and awareness of blindness and vision impairment.
As part of our efforts to support eye care for everyone, the Alcon Foundation has created this site to provide you with information and resources to take care of your eyes and achieve your best eye health.
Today more than 235 million people are estimated to be visually impaired, according to the World Health Organization, and 80 percent of all vision impairment cases can be treated, prevented or cured.
Sight is arguably our most important sense, and Alcon is passionate about making an impact on global eye health through milestones like World Sight Day – and every day.
The Alcon Foundation partners with charitable organizations to provide patient services and eye care practitioner education around the world. Although services, education and training are offered year-round, World Sight Day is an opportunity to bring special attention to the importance of eye health and the remarkable programs our partners and volunteers offer to support it.
