Thank you for making the STOP Glaucoma! Campaign possible
We at the Institut de la Màcula implemented an awareness campaign to draw everyone’s attention to the importance of early detection in glaucoma. Now that the campaign is over, all that remains is to congratulate ourselves and, it goes without saying, all of you. Thanks to everyone, the campaign has been a success and therefore we would like to express our gratitude for placing your trust in us.
On the days when we conducted early detection tests, both at the Institut and at the different Ecoceutics pharmacies, we attended to 120 patients. Of these, 20% have an increased risk of suffering from glaucoma. This is why we recommended that they make an appointment to see their eye doctor.
This type of campaign is virtually essential to make people aware of the importance of glaucoma. The fact that one of every two sufferers are unaware of it means that we cannot just stand by. That is why it is so important not to lose sight of the disease, not just on red-letter dates like World Glaucoma Week.
