END OF FINANCIAL YEAR APPEAL

Russell M“After 20 years of successful treatment I am thankful my glaucoma is well-managed and my vision is fine. I know my family may also be at risk. With the help of Glaucoma Australia I feel secure knowing they have the information and support they may need for their future protection. Help families like mine ‘have the conversation’ about glaucoma.” Russell M.

When Russell was first diagnosed he became a Glaucoma Australia Friend and Supporter, learning all he could about glaucoma. Glaucoma Australia provided clear and accessible information that helped reassure him about the condition. He also valued the support of a friendly chat with someone who shared his experience. In turn he was confident about ‘having the conversation’ with his family.

Russell’s early diagnosis and careful monitoring has minimised potential damage to his vision. Glaucoma generally has no warning signs and is usually discovered through a routine eye examination. Early detection through regular eye testing is vital for maintaining vision.

Help Glaucoma Australia offer hope for the future by supporting its important work- promoting awareness, funding Australian glaucoma research, providing information and support networks for people like Russell and their families.

2017 World Glaucoma Week

World Glaucoma Week was held 12 - 18 March, 2017.

If you have glaucoma, 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 register anytime to fund-raise for World Glaucoma Week at TheBigBreakfast.org.au.

Funds raised will help Glaucoma Australia to conduct Wolrd Glaucoma Week activities to save sight.
