This year’s National Glaucoma Awareness Week will take place on the 8 – 14 June 2015. The focus will be on driving and encouraging people to have regular eye health checks to ensure that they are safe to drive. It is only with regular eye health checks through a local optometrist, that people will know if their driving vision is affected. This is particularly important with glaucoma, as it has no early symptoms. But, with early detection and continued treatment people will often retain useful sight for life and be safe to drive for many years.
Information packs including posters, leaflets, banners and facts on glaucoma and driving will be available for despatch in April. If you are interested in receiving a pack or would like to find out more about the week please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Glaucoma UK’s Board of Trustees is considering changing the charity’s membership model. The result would be that the trustees would become the only voting members.
The Board would continue to draw trustees from our membership and the people we support, and the charity would continue to provide opportunities for the people who use our services to influence how we deliver them.
We would welcome your views.Read More
