Thursday is World Sight Day and in order to mark the same, Ken Bowden and other members of Tahmoor Lions Club have been planning to ensure protection of the sight of all residents of Macarthur region.
Mr. Bowden affirmed, "The Lions organization internationally has a program called the Lions Eye Health Program, which is about empowering people in the local community to save sight".
As per the findings, the day is a part of a global initiative that is aimed at promoting awareness regarding eye health. The same is celebrated each year, during which people are asked to get regular optical check-ups as well as maintain a healthy lifestyle. Also, they are urged to wear sunglasses to prevent UV damage.
It is being said by the group that people would be requested on a wide scale to get their sightedness checked. Since, they often miss the same amid their daily routine and initially getting an eye-sight problem, some of them later develop serious conditions.
As per the club members, brochures have also been prepared highlighting the importance of eye health and risks of macular degeneration and glaucoma. Being distributed at doctors' offices, chemists and optometrists across the whole Wollondilly shire region, these are available in eight different languages.
