Dr. Marta Pazos, the ophthalmologist at the Institut de la Màcula and a glaucoma specialist, was a guest on the Catalunya Ràdio programme “Nit dels Ignorants” to discuss the dangers of tobacco smoke for eyesight. Smoking is associated with a fourfold risk of blindness.

Dr. Pazos explained that tobacco increases the chance of macular degeneration and cataracts and is also linked to a rise in intraocular pressure, which is a major risk factor for the development of glaucoma.
