Focus On Glaucoma

Glaucoma can be considered an important eye disease that is often neglected by eye care planners. Many people with glaucoma are not diagnosed until they have become completely blind.

The Focus On Glaucoma initiative was first launched in the year 2019. For World Glaucoma Week 2020 IAPB partnered with international organisations and experts in glaucoma care to draw a spotlight on the third leading cause of blindness. “Focus On Glaucoma” marked the week with a series of activities: lectures, webinars, blog posts and more.

Focus On Webinars

The highlight of the campaign was a high-profile video webinar on 13 March, 2020 via Zoom.

Over the course of the week, we organised 6 webinars to discuss various aspects of glaucoma care and management from around the world.

Focus On Blog

IAPB member organisations and global experts across all regions contributed more than 20 blog posts outlining themes and issues around their work in glaucoma.
