Glaucoma is a common eye condition that can damage the optic nerve (which connects
the eye to the brain). It often happens when pressure builds up within the eye and, left
undetected and untreated, it can lead to loss of vision. The problem is that glaucoma doesn’t
usually have any symptoms until quite late on, when it starts to affect your vision.
Working with the IGA
We’ve partnered with the International Glaucoma Association (IGA) to help raise awareness and avoid preventable sight loss.
Together, we’ve developed specialist glaucoma training, in order for our teams to help glaucoma sufferers with their treatment – specifically on how to apply their eye drops. Our aim is to have at least one team member in each store with this glaucoma training.
