Glaucoma Buddies

Posted on 29th October 2013

As part of their continuing work the international Glaucoma Association (IGA) http://www.glaucoma-association.com/ recently launched a buddy scheme to provide support to people due to undergo laser or surgical glaucoma treatment.

The scheme works to pair up people who have been through similar procedures who can offer practical information and piece of mind about what to expect from the surgery, and the hospital staff.

Local support groups have also been set up. List of these and dates of local meetings can be found on the website.

If anyone is interested in being a buddy, please contact info@iga.org.uk or call sightline on 01233 648170
