To raise awareness of the importance of eye health, the international Love Your Eyes campaign for World Sight Day 2021 secured more than 3 million pledges from people all around the world, who have committed to either have an eye test or care for their eyes. For this campaign an eye test includes all vision tests and eye health tests, whether they use specific equipment or not, while caring for your eyes can be as simple as wearing the correct safety equipment for your eyes or to have regular eye health check-ups.
In New Zealand, Eye Health Aotearoa supported the Love Your Eyes campaign by raising eye health awareness and over 4,000 pledges! Once again Kiwis have punched above their weight.
