Light up in GREEN in Japan

The “Light up in GREEN” movement is a movement led by the Japan Glaucoma Society to light up public (and private) hospitals and institutions in green during World Glaucoma Week, to spread glaucoma awareness and impel latent patients to visit medical institutions. The green light represents hope for a lifetime of quality vision in glaucoma patients. We are proud to report that our movement has been expanding yearly, and this year a total of over 300 institutions nationwide and overseas participated in the “Light up in GREEN” movement. We are aiming to further expand our movement both within Japan and internationally. We are always open to new offers to participate.
