World Glaucoma Week is celebrated on March, the aim of the project is to help eliminate blindness caused by this disease by raising awareness and alerting on the need of having regular eye check-ups in which the optic nerve is examined.
The main problem with open-angle glaucoma is that it is a chronic disease that shows no symptoms in early stages.
Therefore, the only way to detect it is to have regular eye check-ups starting at the age of 40 to 45.
This is especially true for people who have direct relatives who suffer from the disease or for people with high myopia.
A high proportion of people suffers from presbyopia from age 40: in patients with hyperopia it occurs sooner, and in patients with nearsightedness, it occurs later in life.
Presbyopia is characterized by a failure of focusing near objects. This means the ability of focusing objects located at a 25-30 cm distance, which is the usual reading distance, is lost.
