World Glaucoma Week is designed to spread awareness and understanding about the
importance of early detection of glaucoma
World Glaucoma Day is observed on March 12 to 18 every year across the world. This is an
important day that seeks to raise awareness about the group of eye diseases known as glaucoma.
The day is part of a week of raising awareness about this disease and ensuring that it is caught
early. Early detection of glaucoma improves the chances of stopping or at least slowing the
disease down with appropriate treatments. The blindness caused by glaucoma is irreversible, but
if caught early, the disease can be treated and people will not have to endure the difficulties of
blindness when it is preventable.
