Saving Sight (2021)
Glaucoma is the third leading cause of blindness and a leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide. In 2015, an estimated 3 million people were blind due to Glaucoma.” (IAPB). Most people with glaucoma do not know they have the condition. This is because glaucoma is a “silent” disease that destroys vision from the periphery unnoticed until it’s too late. Only early detection during an eye examination can help to prevent this, by providing treatment when vision is still present and can be saved.
Sightsavers continues to support people living with this condition to enable them to access the qualitative medical care they need.
