Have you been spending more time looking at the screens of computers and smartphones, both at work and in your personal life under current COVID-19 situation? Our eyes may be overused every day. Surprisingly, half of the world's population or about 5 billion people will be myopic by 2050*.

October 10 is Japan Sight Day and October 8 is World Sight Day. Let's take a moment to think about the health of our eyes and the beauty of seeing brilliantly.

Part of our Japan Sight Day and World Sight Day initiative, this year, Alcon Japan is participating in KYOTOGRAPHIE International Photography Festival in Kyoto. The theme this year of the festival is VISION.

VISION created by spirited photographers from Japan and abroad from their own perspectives will be exhibited throughout the city of Kyoto. How will the artists' works resonate with the hearts of the people living today?

Alcon x KYOTOGRAPHIE:We will show your photo of “VISION - See Brilliantly- ” on the on-site monitor

As part of collaboration between Alcon and KYOTOGRAPHIE, Alcon Station will be set up in the Information & Bookstore during the festival period, where your photo of VISION – See Brilliantly - posted on Instagram will be displayed on a monitor in the Alcon Station.

Youth with friends, time with family, children growing up, smiling faces of loved ones, magnificent views in front of you, time to enjoy your hobbies... We invite you to post a photo on your own Instagram account with the hashtag #AlconKG2020 or #アルコンと京都国際写真祭 that expresses your VISION – See Brilliantly - and the joy it brings you.

Level of photography does not matter. Everyone is welcome to participate!

You never know, your photo might catch the eye of professional artists!


Sat., Sept. 19 – Sun., Oct. 18
