Sharat MaxiVision Eye Hospital Organizes Rally to Create Awareness of Glaucoma on World Glaucoma Week

Warangal, 17th March 2023: The Warangal-based Sharat Maxi Vision Eye Hospital group organized a rally today to raise awareness of Glaucoma, which causes blindness and vision loss, on the occasion of World Glaucoma Week. Every year, in March, we observe World Glaucoma Awareness Week to spread awareness of the disease among people. For every 100 patients who visit our hospital, at least 10 are affected directly or indirectly. For those over 40 years of age, it is mandatory to have regular eye checkups. We organize free glaucoma eye camps every year during Glaucoma Week, which is observed from 12th to 18th March every year across the globe. Glaucoma is a complex disease in which damage to the optic nerve leads to progressive, irreversible vision loss. It is also known as the silent killer because it does not show any symptoms. Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness, according to the World Health Organization, and one of the major problems affecting adults. People living in rural areas are more prone to glaucoma due to a lack of awareness.
