Sight Day is a special annual day of awareness that is celebrated around the world each year in order to focus on blindness and vision impairment. This day was created by the World Health Organization in collaboration with the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness and awareness is spread through a large number of different events.

A large number of organizations around the world have been involved with Sight Day for many years. Some people choose to show their support by planting trees, while other people get involved by submitting a photograph that will be used to create an international photograph montage focusing on the theme of blindness.

Other activities that take place on this day include special fundraising walks to help cover the costs of operations, book readings for the blind and a number of booklets and posters that are created in order to raise awareness of the issue.
