World Sight Day Challenge is the largest international optometry fund raising event of the year. The Challenge is an international event that is recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO). The event is coordinated by Optometry Giving Sight, an organization dedicated to 'transforming lives through the gift of vision'.

The World Sight Day Challenge, in partnership with Optometry Giving Sight, focuses on bringing the importance of eye and vision health to the public. Donations online are used to give those in need comprehensive eye exams as well as glasses. Also, donations are given to supporting optometry students' education.

This is a one day event, but the mission of the World Sight Day Challenge is to raise awareness about the importance of eye health year round. Each year, Optometry Giving Sight establishes a specific goal to focus on during the World Sight Day Challenge; for 2014 the call to action is for 'No More Avoidable Blindness'.

Harbor Eyecare Center is offering a discount for optical purchases with a donation to Optometry Giving Sight. There is a 10% discount for a $10 donation, 20% for $20, and finally 30% for $30.
