CooperVision is committed to helping people around the world to see better every day. Part of this commitment means making a difference in our local and global communities. If you are planning coverage of World Sight Day 2023—which will be celebrated on Thursday, October 12—we ask that you please include the following CooperVision initiatives:

  • World Sight Day Challenge Fundraising. Keeping with a longstanding tradition to raise money and awareness for the cause, CooperVision teams around the world are organizing fundraising activities for Optometry Giving Sight’s World Sight Day Challenge. For example, members of the company’s R&D team in Pleasanton, Calif., hosted a “Strikes for Sight” bowling event, during which participants pledged to make donations ranging from $0.25 to $1 per strike. Ultimately, 102 strikes were bowled in the two-hour period, with each employee donating between $25.50 and $102. The total funds raised by CooperVision will be announced later this year.

CooperVision Strikes for Sight Event

  • United Nations Photo Exhibition. As a Global Patron of the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness, CooperVision joined forces with the organization for the 2030 IN SIGHT photo exhibition at the United Nations headquarters in New York from October 9-20. Submissions, including one from CooperVison and Vision Action from their work screening children in Ghana, challenge viewers to consider the impact of eye health on sustainable development outcomes. You can preview the exhibition, including a submission, by visiting the exhibit website or through the attached booklet.
