WORLD GLAUCOMA WEEK
World Glaucoma Week is held in March each year to increase awareness about glaucoma.
WORLD GLAUCOMA WEEK 2014
9-15 March 2014
WGW-2014 theme is: B.I.G- Beat Invisible Glaucoma.
You can Beat Invisible Glaucoma with a simple optic nerve check.
During World Glaucoma Week we are asking you to Beat Invisible Glaucoma. Everyone hopes to preserve their eyesight- this World Glaucoma Week help by taking part in the World’s B.I.G Breakfast.
This is especially important if you have been diagnosed as having glaucoma. Host the B.I.G Breakfast to inform your family that 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.
Outside the family, everyone can become Glaucoma Ambassadors by hosting a B.I.G Breakfast with friend and work colleagues.
