2020 World Glaucoma Week: FMC Yola Takes Free Testing/Screening To NUj Secretariat For Staff And Members

The Periscope reporter

Glaucoma, a global major cause of blindness, is a group of irreversible eye diseases that progressively and, in many cases, silently damages the optic nerve, causing gradual and permanent vision loss.

To be able to address the eye disease, a week is set aside annually globally, to create awareness and educate people about the Glaucoma, its prevention and management.

Suffices to say, as a global annual event, “World Glaucoma Week” is celebrated with lectures, paper presentations, seminars, rally, free Glaucoma screening/testing, treatment and counselling, among other activities.

World Glaucoma Week is a joint initiative between the World Glaucoma Association and the World Glaucoma Patient Association. It is reported to have had a highly successful run for the past ten years.
