This week is World Glaucoma Week
Glaucoma is the world’s 2nd biggest cause of blindness.
It causes progressive damage to the optic nerve stopping the eye from sending visual information to the brain.
Glaucoma doesn't normally cause any symptoms to begin with.
50% of people affected have no symptoms and aren’t even aware that they have it. Regular eye testing can pick up these early signs, so why not book an eye test with us and put your mind at ease.
Some of the symptoms of glaucoma are:
Seeing rainbow coloured circles around bright lights
