Look out for local screening events, lectures, more coverage on radio and TV shows and more newspaper articles on glaucoma this week

If you have a family history of glaucoma please make it a priority to have an eye examination involving assessment of the optic nerve inside the eye, measurement of the intraocular pressure and a visual field assessment for both eyes to rule out any problems that might be due to glaucoma
