Many people often fear losing vision; yet take minimal intentional steps in caring for their eyes. Eye Care Awareness Month is commemorated from 21 September to 18 October to raise awareness about the importance of eye health, specifically around the prevention and treatment of avoidable blindness.
According to the national Government, 75% of all cases of blindness is avoidable either through prevention or through treatment. This is why is important to get your eyes tested at least once per year.
