Whitepaper - Glaucoma screening: a global perspective

What are the risk factors for glaucoma and how can identifying them guide creation of robust screening programmes?


60 million people live with glaucoma worldwide, and close to 5 million people are blind from open angle glaucoma. Glaucoma is prevalent and presents many challenges for the eye health industry. Our whitepaper examines open angle and angle closure glaucoma from a global perspective , looking at:

  • The prevalance of glaucoma
  • Genetic and age-related risk factors
  • Glaucoma screening in practice

With a top-heavy ageing population, the number of glaucoma sufferers is expected to rise to 79 million worldwide by 2020, so taking action now is vital. The eye care industry needs to act swiftly to beat this silent thief of sight. Our whitepaper explores how to set up robust screening programmes that will identify, monitor and treat glaucoma.
