Those living with glaucoma are at the heart of all they do. They support people to live well with the disease by providing a telephone helpline, support groups, peer support services and widely acclaimed information booklets.
Glaucoma is a complicated disease. Put simply, it’s a group of eye diseases that damage the optic nerve. Most people experience no symptoms in the early stages and the only way to know if you have it is to have an eye test. If it’s not treated, glaucoma will lead to irreversible sight loss and even blindness. Anyone can develop glaucoma, but there are several risk factors making the disease more likely, including age, ethnicity, and family history.
By leaving a gift in your will to Glaucoma UK, you will be continuing the fight against preventable blindness. You will help them to continue to represent people with or at risk of glaucoma, ensuring they have the advice, care and treatment helping them to retain useful sight for life. You don’t have to leave a large gift to make a difference to people with glaucoma.
