Glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide, and the disease affects 300,000 Australians with 50% unaware they have it.
This World Glaucoma Week (6-12 March 2022), let’s raise awareness on glaucoma prevention. Encourage your friends and family to get their eyes checked every two years. Early detection is key to preventing irreversible damage caused by glaucoma.
Here are three patient stories that promote early detection through regular eye checks with your optometrist:
- Glaucoma Patient Kelly Mercieca is Living Life to the Full
- Shannon Davis completely blindsided by his glaucoma diagnosis
- Marsfield Senior Tony Bourke says Australians need to open their eyes when it comes to glaucoma
