This World Glaucoma Week (10-16 March, 2019) IAPB is partnering with international organizations and experts in glaucoma care to draw a spotlight on the third leading cause of blindness. Through a new campaign, “Focus on: Glaucoma”, they will draw a spotlight on blindness due to glaucoma, which is irreversible. Indeed, glaucoma can be considered an important “neglected eye disease”. The campaign will hold series of activities during the week, including four webinars covering different time-zones, and a number of blog-posts from glaucoma experts from around the world.
