Glaucoma screening Event
Within the World Glaucoma Week, ASL Roma 1 and AIMO have organized a screening day for the early detection of Glaucoma. The appointment is for March 12 from 8.45 to 12.30 at the Ophthalmic Hospital of Rome.
Glaucoma is the second most common cause of blindness in the world. It is a pathology mostly related to an increase in eye pressure that causes progressive damage of the optic nerve that carries visual information to the brain. If not treated, most types of glaucoma can progress (without warnings or obvious symptoms to the patient) with a worsening of vision and in severe cases can lead to blindness.
Early diagnosis is essential to limit visual impairment and to prevent progression to severe visual impairments or even to blindness and can be performed by measuring eye pressure and optic nerve observation.
