    When did you last get your eyes checked?

    Straight up: glaucoma is a disease that kills vision. It's preventable - but only if you know about it with regular check of your optic nerve (300,000 Aussies have it and half don't even know it).

     

    It runs in the family. So ask your parents if they've had issues. You are up to 8x more likely to get it if they have it.

     

    Bloggers like myself are taking to the blogosphere and spreading the message:

     

    Please do something to help.

  • I can't believe my eyes

     

    Something different.

    Of all the things we take for granted... imagine walking around blind. I think about it sometimes.

     

    Let me ask you:

    When was the last time you got your eyes checked?

    Do any of your relatives suffer from glaucoma?

    If I told you that you could help catch 'the sneak thief of sight' just by spreading the word right now, would you?

     

    Some facts:

    Glaucoma steals sight. It's preventable, but you need to get your optic nerve (nerve of sight) checked regularly to know if you have it. Especially if it runs in your family (you are up to 8 times more likely to get it). 

    Lastly, over 300,000 Australians are walking around with it (as best as they can), and half don't even know it.

     

    That's where we come in. Bloggers like me, and readers like you need to step up.

    We need to spread the word and increase awareness.

    • Take something from this blog post and copy the link to Glaucoma Australia into your Facebook status now and share.
    • Ask questions, get your optic nerve checked, and get friends and family to get checked as well
    • Glaucoma Australia provides education to glaucoma sufferers that really do it tough, and they also fund research for glaucoma cures, so it's worth donating as much or as little as your able. Even $10. 

    There are 300,000 lives we can make better. Let's get cracking!

  • Hi all,
    I know a little about glaucoma, so I wanted to share about it for a minute.

    It's a serious eye disease that robs people of their sight. It's preventable - but over 300,000 Australians have it and half don't even know it.

  • Dear all,
    I felt this was important enough to email around.

    I was finding a little bit out about glaucoma recently. It's a disease that basically steals your sight. It's terrible, it runs in families, and over 300,000 Aussies have it and half don't even know.

    Three things:
    When did you last get your optic nerve (eyes) checked?
    Do you know anyone in your family with glaucoma?
    Can you donate a little to support glaucoma sufferers and fund research for a cure?

    You can find out more, and donate from here: http://tinyurl.com/7vvz5rj

    Thanks so much for reading,
    Best,

  • Guys,
    When was the last time you got your eyes checked?
    Do you know what glaucoma is - does anyone else in your family have it?

    Glaucoma: a disease known as 'the sneak thief of sight'. It's preventable, but you need to get your optic nerve checked regularly- especially if there's family history. 300,000 Aussies have it and HALF don't even know it!

    Can I ask you all to raise awareness by just forwarding this email around?
