World Glaucoma Week is March 10-16. It is a global initiative of the World Glaucoma Association (WGA) to raise awareness on glaucoma. It includes a series of global activities alerting people to have regular eye and optic nerve checks to detect glaucoma earlier, thus preserving sight.

Every one in 200 people aged 40 has glaucoma, which rises to one in eight by age 80. It is also more common in persons of African descent.

In many cases, glaucoma may be asymptomatic, meaning it shows no symptoms; half of those living with glaucoma are unaware that they are affected.

How often should you get checked for Glaucoma?

BEFORE AGE 40:  every 2 – 4 years

FROM 40 – 60: every 2 – 3 years

AFTER 60: every 1 – 2 years

For persons who are short-sighted or have a family history of glaucoma, regardless of age, you should go for a glaucoma examination EVERY YEAR.
