World Glaucoma Week 2016 – RANZCO hosts an informative B.I.G Breakfast

RANZCO staff gathered together for the Beat Invisible Glaucoma Breakfast in support of this year’s World Glaucoma Week 6-12 March. With everyone bringing an array of delicious and healthy food, it was a great opportunity to come together and help raise awareness about what’s known as the ‘silent thief of sight’.

RANZCO staff member, Adam Kiernan, gave an insightful presentation on how Glaucoma affects our vision and how it can lead to blindness if left untreated. The damage to our vision progresses slowly and gradually and, because one eye covers for the other, we remain unaware of any problem until significant vision is lost.

With Glaucoma being an inherited disease affecting over 300,000 Australians and more than 7 million people worldwide, it is important to have the conversation with our families and get our eyes checked regularly.

Visit the bigbreakfast.org.au to learn about how you can protect your family’s sight and help beat Invisible Glaucoma.

You can find additional information about Glaucoma on the RANZCO website, facebook and twitter
