World Sight Day at the Base

World Sight Day at the Base
On 11 October GrandVision (whose Dutch banners include Pearle and Eyewish and is located in the Base, tower C) will support the annual World Sight Day by offering a free eye test and collecting eyewear for a 2nd life to be donated to people in need. Both activities will take place in the atrium of The Base from 8.00 to 18.00 hrs in GrandVision’s fully equipped booth.

GrandVision has retail banners in more than 40 different countries. It is supporting World Sight Day in all stores across the world, where similar activities are being organized.

What is World Sight Day?
World Sight Day (WSD) is an international day of awareness, held annually on the second Thursday of October to bring attention to the global issue of avoidable blindness and visual impairment. It encourages organizations, governments, corporations, institutions and individuals to actively support global blindness prevention. This year World Sight Day call to action is “Eye Care Everywhere”! On this day, GrandVision will be working together with the Eye Care Foundation, an NGO helping prevent and cure avoidable blindness and visual impairment in developing countries.

Take your chance to have your eyes checked and bring in glasses you no longer use for a 2nd life. See you on 11th of October!
