World Glaucoma Week is nearly upon us – and specialist medical negligence lawyers from Irwin Mitchell are lending their support to the campaign by reminding people of the importance of having regular eyesight tests.

The awareness week, which starts on Sunday 11 March and ends Saturday 17 March is a major collaboration between the World Glaucoma Association and World Glaucoma Patient Association and calls for people to ensure they have eye checks on a regular basis so glaucoma can be detected at an early stage before it causes more severe problems.

Unfortunately there are several types of glaucoma, which all present devastating consequences. Treatment of the disease is only effective at stopping it, and any damage caused is impossible to reverse.

Irwin Mitchell has expert lawyers up and down the country who specialise in ophthalmic issues.

Expert Opinion
“At Irwin Mitchell we support people who face eyesight issues so know all too well the devastating effects it can have on people’s lives.

“Glaucoma is something that most of us have heard of, but few of us are aware of the very real danger that it presents. Our vision and ability to see is precious and deserves regular checks, which is why our colleagues are supporting World Glaucoma Week’s aim of eliminating glaucoma blindness by ensuring that eyesight tests are put in people’s diaries to catch anything out before it causes irreversible damage.”
