WORLD GLAUCOMA WEEK
World Glaucoma Week is held in March each year to increase awareness about glaucoma.
WORLD GLAUCOMA WEEK 2016
During World Glaucoma Week (6 – 12 March, 2016) you can Beat Invisible Glaucoma in families by hosting the B.I.G Breakfast.
If you have glaucoma, you can use the occasion to inform your family:
- They have an increased risk (up to 10 times higher than the general population) and
- Their best protection is to have a regular and comprehensive eye check that includes a review of their optic nerves. This is more than just an eye pressure test.

You can become a Glaucoma Ambassador; like Andrew Voss, by hosting a B.I.G Breakfast with family, friend and/or work colleagues.
