World Glaucoma Week takes place every year during the second week of March. It was created in answer to the growing number of blindness cases due to glaucoma, when screening and therapeutic care is rare.

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that cause progressive damage of the optic nerve at the point where it leaves the eye to carry visual information to the brain.
