It is estimated that approximately 200 000 South Africans are living with glaucoma,1 which is a leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide.2

Glaucoma currently accounts for 12 % of all cases of total blindness globally.3

As the world’s population ages, the prevalence of glaucoma continues to increase; nearly 80 million people worldwide were predicted to have glaucoma by 2020, with this number increasing to 111 million by 2040. 4

As much as 40 % of vision can be lost without patients noticing, so early diagnosis and proper treatment of glaucoma are essential to delay disease progression.5

Speak to your doctor about your risks for glaucoma, and what additional resources and tools may be available to help you understand the disease.
