World Glaucoma Week is a global initiative of the World Glaucoma Association (WGA) in order to raise awareness of glaucoma.

“The overarching goal of this campaign is for everyone to know about the disease called ‘glaucoma’ and encourage the general public to go and get tested. Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of irreversible blindness, but with early treatment, sight may be saved.
