Surrey optometrist raising money

Surrey optometrist Dr. Sandeep Sidhu of FYidoctors is taking part in today’s World Sight Day Challenge to help people in underserved communities around the world.

Now in its ninth year, the World Sight Day Challenge is a global fundraising campaign to address avoidable blindness caused by uncorrected refractive error – simply the need for an eye exam and glasses.

Today, FYidoctors is holding fundraising events/ bake sales/ silent auctions/etc. to help the more than 600 million people in the world who are blind or vision impaired because they do not have access to an eye exam or glasses. The campaign is run by global charity, Optometry Giving Sight.

“We have supported Optometry Giving Sight for nine years,” said Dr. Sidhu. “Preventable blindness is a solvable problem and we are proud to help give better vision to those in need.”

Participating is easy – simply make a single or monthly donation before the end of October. Residents can make a donation at FYidoctors Surrey, which is located at 101 – 6398 120th St., Surrey.
