Yearly screenings are the most effective way to detect glaucoma. It is valuable & critical in order to better your chances of detecting glaucoma sooner than later and is key in helping prevent blindness.
Providing knowledge of eye health issues to the public is crucial. Projects, such as our walk-in eye model, will educate children and adults alike on the inner workings of the eye.
One half of the glaucoma population are not aware they have the disease. As time goes by, glaucoma progressively narrows your field of vision. It is vital to educate and screen as many people as possible to determine the risk for those people so they may seek treatment to reduce the possibility of blindness from glaucoma.
You can help the efforts of our mission. Encourage family and friends to have their eye pressure checked and be aware of any family history of glaucoma. Schedule a screening and presentation with your organization or church. Volunteer to help with a screening. Make a donation today!
