A lecturer at the Department of Optometry and Vision Science of University of Cape Coast [UCC], Dr Samuel Bert Kusi has emphasized the need for awareness creation and the testing for Glaucoma since “the disease is a silent thief of sight”.
According to him, it has become one of the most dreaded eye conditions in the world because its symptoms are not easily detected. Dr Samuel Bert Kusi was speaking in an interview with ATL FM News with regard to this year’s World Glaucoma Week Celebration.
This year’s World Glaucoma Celebration is a joint initiative between the World Glaucoma Association and the World Glaucoma Patient Association. The celebration is under the theme, “Green=Go Get Your Eyes Tested for Glaucoma: Save Your Sight.”
