“90% of blindness from #Glaucoma can be prevented by early detection. #MiraPorTusOjos and visit your ophthalmologist today.”

Mira por tus Ojos is a campaign that aims to raise awareness about glaucoma, emphasizing the importance of early detection of the disease to prevent blindness. Its objective is to raise awareness in Latin America about glaucoma, motivating people to get an eye exam, regularly, as a preventative action by visiting their ophthalmologist. Mira por Tus Ojos is sponsored by several associations and organizations in the region, such as the Sociedad Argentina de Oftalmología, Fundación para el Estudio del Glaucoma, Sociedad Panamericana de Glaucoma, Sociedad Latinoamericana de Glaucoma, Asociación Argentina de Glaucoma, Asociación Uruguaya de Oftalmólogos, Sociedad Uruguaya de Glaucoma, Sociedad Peruana de Glaucoma, Colegio Mexicano de Glaucoma, Sociedad Paraguaya de Oftalmologia and Alcon.
