27 January 2015
This year's National Glaucoma Awareness Week will take place on the 8 - 14 June 2015. The focus will be on driving and encouraging people to have regular eye health checks to ensure that they are safe to drive. It is only with regular eye health checks through a local optometrist, that people will know if their driving vision is affected. This is particularly important with glaucoma, as it has no early symptoms. But, with early detection and continued treatment people will often retain useful sight for life and be safe to drive for many years.
Information packs including posters, leaflets, banners and facts on glaucoma and driving will be available for despatch in April. If you are interested in receiving a pack or would like to find out more about the week please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
