Eye checks for glaucoma should
occur every 2 years. This may be more frequent if you show suspicious signs of glaucoma.
If you are due for a check or have not been
checked before, it is time to make an appointment.
Have your eyes checked by an optometrist and
advise them you have a family member with glaucoma; or
Ask your GP for a referral to a private ophthalmologist; or
Ask your GP for a referral to an ophthalmology clinic
at a public hospital.
To get involved, or to get more information, you can speak to Glaucoma Australia or ANZRAG.
If you would like to provide a DNA sample to the Australian and New Zealand Registry of Advanced Glaucoma please call 08 8404 2035 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
