This year too, IAPB is partnering with international organisations and experts in glaucoma care from around the world to draw a spotlight on the fourth leading cause of blindness. “Focus On Glaucoma” will mark the week with a series of activities: lectures, webinars, blog posts – and a live event in Australia!
