Today marks World Sight Day which is a global initiative providing an opportunity to raise awareness of the causes of blindness, vision impairment, and the preventative measures.

This internationally recognized day falls on the second Thursday of October to focus global attention on blindness and vision impairment. This day is especially important to SOLO Eyewear because this is what we are working towards every day. Eye care has become a more relevant issue with organizations shedding light on key messages such as 80% of all visual impairment is avoidable and approximately 1 billion people do not have access to eye care. These alarming statistics have motivated people to enact change, which is what we are doing at SOLO Eyewear with our Vision To Give. Each purchase of SOLO sunglasses funds eye care for people in need with prescription eyeglasses or cataract surgeries. Visit for more information on World Sight Day.
