Glaucoma Support Group is organising a public awareness seminar on glaucoma at Advanced Eye Centre, Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER), here on Sunday. The seminar will start at 11am.
Dr SS Pandav, professor of Ophthalmology at Advanced Eye Centre, will speak on “Challenges of living with glaucoma: What to expect and how to make best use of available treatments”. Glaucoma is a common cause of permanent visual loss. Early diagnosis and treatment can prevent blindness and 90% of glaucoma cases in the country are undetected due to lack of awareness.
