Our Children’s Vision is a call to action – to come together to ensure that effective, inclusive, sustainable eye health initiatives are available to children around the world, regardless of their economic status or geographical location.
Optometry Giving Sight is proud to be a global partner in Our Children’s Vision. We believe that Our Children’s Vision will ensure every child, everywhere has access to the eye care they need. The best part is you can help.
What does a child see for their future? Moonwalks, sold out stadiums, the presidency? The most striking part of any child’s dream is their ambition. But the key to all those ambitions is a good education, and getting a good education is difficult without good eyesight.
Every seven year old, when going to school, should take along a certificate from their optometrist saying, ‘I’ve had my eyes examined, I’m ok I can see.
Children should not be limited by a preventable or treatable vision impairment.
Our initial target is to provide services to 50 million children by 2020. It is an achievable goal and, by supporting the development of local people and utilising their expertise, we will reach it. We can achieve sustainability and efficiency by operating inside established systems with people who know and understand current processes.
Research is vital to driving awareness and achieving change. We are committed to understanding and communicating the level of need for eye care services and the impact that the increasing prevalence of myopia is having on our children. The knowledge gained will demonstrate the missing link in complete health provision for children.

by Clarity Optometrists
The Clarity team hit Sydney recently to look at whats hot in frames and equipment recently at the ODMA fair.
Hosted by the Optical Distributors & Manufacturers Association of Australia (ODMA), the ODMA Fair is a trade event held every two years. Since 1979
the ODMA Fair has been a vital resource for the industry.
ODMA2017 took place 7 – 9 July in Sydney at the new and stunning International Convention Centre at Darling Harbour. Not held in Sydney for the past 6
years, there is much anticipation for ODMA2017 to return to the harbour city.
ODMA2017 had an array of new interactive features, major networking events and strong educational content including revamped Masterclasses and Spotlight
Recently, ODMA members have been surveyed and have provided constructive feedback to help reshape and improve outcomes of participation in the industry
fair. Being back in Sydney, in a stunning new venue with many new initiatives, ODMA2017 promises to deliver the very latest in fashion, innovation
and technology and be the best to date.
Watch out for new frames that will be arriving in practice very soon!
