World Glaucoma Week 2014


On behalf of the Board of Governors and the World Glaucoma Week Committee, we would like to thank all around the world for their active contribution with regards to the 7th edition of World Glaucoma Week. Over 700 awareness events were registered via the WGW world map, which is just a tip of the iceberg of all events being organized. Thank you also for sharing your news, photos and creative ideas via the WGW Facebook page.
We deeply appreciate the dedication of so many motivated colleagues, patients and industry representatives joining forces and create the necessary extra attention for glaucoma.
If you did not yet register your event via the WGW-2014 site, please take a few minutes to do so.

Next year’s WGW is planned from March 8 – 14, 2015
