RepostBy @ibadanmedicine: . "WORLD SIGHT DAY (WSD) is an annual day of awareness held on the second Thursday of October, to focus global attention on blindness and vision impairment. This year's theme is STRONGER TOGETHER!. 285 million people globally are visually impaired. According to the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness, 80 percent of these cases could be avoided if people were to receive comprehensive eye care services. The key to good eye health is early detection. As part of your overall plan to stay healthy, have your eyes examined on a regular basis – even if you think there’s nothing wrong with your vision. Two ways you can celebrate WORLD SIGHT DAY 1. MAKE AN APPOINTMENT FOR A COMPREHENSIVE DILATED EYE EXAM. In addition to an eye chart test, your eye doctor will use drops to dilate your pupils and get a better view of the back of your eyes. If you find out you’re in the early stages of an eye disease like glaucoma or age-related macular degeneration, know you’re in good hands. Your eye care professional will help you to achieve and maintain the highest possible level of eye health and visual function. 2. ENCOURAGE FAMILY MEMBERS TO HAVE THEIR EYES EXAMINED. Especially children if they haven’t had their eyes examined by an eye care professional. Also urge loved ones who are at risk for vision loss to get examinations, like those who have diabetes, which is a leading cause of avoidable blindness @nimsa_ng @famsa_westafrica @iamdrkel @medicalstudentsfashion @ooumsa @abuadmedical @amsul_unilag @buams_official @bamshealth @cooumsa @aaumsa @official_ubemsa @udumsa @official_cumsa @oau_ifumsa_ @laumsa_ng @lasumsa @gsumsa @ilumsa_ilorin @bhumsa @youifmsa @officialcda @scafnigeria @dr_phili @itsjblaze #WorldSightDay2016 #WSD #StrongerTogether #ophthalmology #medical #health #sight #see #eye #eyedoctor"
