Hobie® Eyewear Celebrates World Sight Day, Promoting Eye Safety and Health

Oceanside, CA — Hobie® Eyewear, a leading brand in premium sunglasses, is thrilled to announce its participation in World Sight Day on October 12, 2023. On this occasion, Hobie Eyewear emphasizes the importance of eye safety and eye health, aligning with the global effort to raise awareness about these critical issues.

#LoveYourEyes #WorldSightDay

World Sight Day is an annual event dedicated to highlighting global eye health issues and the necessity of accessible and high-quality eye care. It provides an opportunity for individuals and organizations to come together and underscore the significance of proactive measures to protect and maintain vision.

As we commemorate this important day, it is crucial to recognize that 1.1 billion people experience vision loss primarily because they do not have access to eye health services when they need them, where they need them. This staggering statistic underscores the urgent need to prioritize eye health and increase accessibility to eye care services worldwide.

The International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (@IAPB) is encouraging employers to make eye health initiatives standard practice and promote eye health habits that will benefit the well-being, safety, and productivity of millions of employees. #WorldSightDay highlights the positive impact eyecare can have on education, economic productivity, and safety.
