Putting better sight in the public eye
Written on the 9 October 2014 by scotch
A pair of eyes - one seeing and one blind - make the arresting image to promote ways of preventing blindness, which has won 11-year-old schoolgirl Holly Hyde a special place in today’s World Sight Day.
The Scotch College student won the Posters for Sight competition in South Australia, run by the SA Institute of Opthalmology’s Sight For All program coinciding with World Sight Day.
The competition’s theme was blindness caused by diabetes, and Holly’s grandmother is among those suffering from the disease.
“I really liked the idea of telling the story about a disease,” she said.
“And I found out what you could do if you made the right lifestyle changes.”
Her poster features two eyes and an arrangement of the words: “Do you see what eye see”.
“One of the eyes is affected by a bad disease, so I put tracing paper over the top of one eye,” said Holly.
At the opening of an exhibition of the World Sight Day posters last night, Holly won $250 and her school a $3000 projector.
World Sight Day raises awareness of avoidable blindness and vision impairment.
