World Glaucoma Week 2018 (11-17 March 2018) focused on the prevalence of glaucoma in the UK and globally with an emphasis on the importance of regular eye health checks to detect glaucoma in the early stages. We worked with a range of partners to encourage eye health checks. We developed graphics, posters and a banner, all of which could be ordered from the free posters section of the IGA shop. 

During the week, Karen Osborn, Chief Executive of the IGA together with Dr Forte of Specsavers, featured in several radio interviews. Some of these can be listed to by clicking the links below:

We supported the Vision Express Vision Van during the week and also helping to launch new Vision Express stores. Look out for activity on social media.
