Veronica sets her sights on independence after glaucoma diagnosis
Glaucoma Australia is launching a new, upbeat campaign called ‘Treat Your Eyes’, which is encouraging Australians to treat their precious peepers to an eye test in support of World Glaucoma Week (7–13 March 2021).
Glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide. The disease affects 300,000 Australians, with 50% unaware that they have the disease because they haven’t had a comprehensive eye exam.
Blue Mountains-based, Veronica Dooley, now 92, was diagnosed with glaucoma more than 32 years ago. She recalls being shocked by the news.
