WCO celebrates World Children’s Day

Paediatric clinical resources for optometrists have been created by the World Council of Optometry (WCO) in recognition of World Children’s Day (November 20).

The day raises awareness of the importance of children’s right and welfare, and WCO resources include clinical information and assessment tools to encourage accessible eye care.

Sandra Block, president of the WCO, said: ‘The World Council of Optometry supports efforts to ensure that vision development is considered as part of a child’s overall growth and development.

'The experts who volunteer for our organization have worked hard to put together this excellent resource for optometrists to help each of you better assess, diagnose, and treat vision and eye health problems in the children you serve.’
