Living with Glaucoma – the Patient Experience

Join us for a very special Facebook Live Q&A with glaucoma patient Shannon Davis on Thursday 10th March at 6PM AEDT!

Shannon was first diagnosed with glaucoma when he was 43. Having never needed glasses before, his primary concern heading to his optometrist was getting a good-looking pair of frames.

10 minutes into his appointment he was told he had advanced glaucoma with high eye pressures and irreversible damage to his optic nerves. He needed to see an eye surgeon and begin treatment urgently. Shannon is now legally blind, no longer able to drive and has medically retired from his job.

During this Facebook Live event he will share his experience living with glaucoma and talk about the importance of all Australians prioritising their eye health and having regular eye exams.

The Q&A session following Shannon’s presentation will be hosted by Glaucoma Australia’s CEO Annie Gibbins and include our Orthoptist Educator Sapna Nand.

We would love for you to join us next week and hear from Shannon. If you have any questions you’d like to ask him about his experience, be sure to add them in the comments below!
