GLAUCOMA: The thief of sight.

Ocular health,

Her Story….

When she was first diagnosed with GLAUCOMA, it hit her hard. She thought “Oh no, it cannot happen to me, I’m too young for this, why me?”
She was so distressed she didn’t know anything about this THIEF OF SIGHT called GLAUCOMA, all she knew was that she could go BLIND.

She said “I’m quite an independent lady and I would hate to be dependent on anyone cos of blindness”.

The thought was very scary, it would be so for anyone.

Now back to you, yes you reading this now;

• Do you know there is an eye disease called GLAUCOMA (related to high eye pressure which can damage the optic nerve that connects the eye to the brain).


• Do you know that GLAUCOMA can steal your sight?


• Do you know that initially you might not notice any symptoms, not even pain. You may even bump into things because you’re loosing the outer edge of your vision?


•Do you know that u have a high chance of developing GLAUCOMA if you have parents, siblings, or grandparents living with glaucoma?


•If you have GLAUCOMA, encourage your family to be checked for GLAUCOMA to prevent your loved ones from going blind.

REMEMBER YOU MAY LOOSE YOUR SIGHT, AND YOU’LL BE UNABLE TO GET IT BACK!!!

Have eye issues? Please report to the nearest eye clinic to be examined. Prevention is always better than cure. In this case there is none.
