World Sight Day 2008, Thursday October 8th. And Contest!

World Sight Day 2008

This is a cause close to my heart, my mom was rushed into emergency eye surgery this summer. She has a great optometrist who was checking her eye and noticed her retina was tearing and could detach if left untreated leaving her blind. Thanks to his expertise her eye is now healed and she is back to normal vision, without good preventive care for my mom and others its too easy for unnecessary blindness to occur.

Thursday 9th October
