Thursday 12th March is World Glaucoma Day, the second day of its kind. This is a joint global initiative of the World Glaucoma Association (WGA) and the World Glaucoma Patient Association (WGPA) to put the spotlight on glaucoma. The aim of the day is to raise awareness of Glaucoma as a leading cause of preventable blindness worldwide.

In the UK, it involves organisations such as RNIB and the recently formed Glaucoma Alliance UK. This alliance of charities, glaucoma specialists, professional organisations and researchers are raising awareness of glaucoma, what it does to sight and how it might affect you.
