7 - 13 March World Glaucoma Week 2021

Having an eye test today may save your sight for tomorrow!

World Glaucoma Week is a global initiative to raise awareness of glaucoma. We want people to protect their sight with regular eye exams and continue to see the world around them: full of beauty, wonder and adventure. 

We want anyone with glaucoma to also get their relatives involved, as the chances of them getting glaucoma are 10 times higher than someone with no history of glaucoma in their family background. World Glaucoma Week is a great opportunity to raise awareness and start having a conversation about regular eye checks with friends and family.

  • Most people with glaucoma are not aware of it: most glaucoma patients have zero symptoms.
