World Glaucoma Week is a joint initiative between the World Glaucoma Association and the World Glaucoma Patient Association and has had a highly successful run for the past 10 years.
The Asia-Pacific Glaucoma Society is proud to support World Glaucoma Week and encourages participation from ophthalmologists in the Asia-Pacific region.
We need your help in making World Glaucoma Week successful and creating greater glaucoma awareness, so please:
- Involve your glaucoma patients as you organize a screening event in your local institute/hospital
- Give a lecture to a patient support group
- Participate in radio & TV shows to talk about glaucoma and to answer questions
- Contact newspapers to publish information about glaucoma.
More details about World Glaucoma Week and many examples of glaucoma awareness activities around the world are to be found on the WGW website.
