The facts:
Upwards of 65 million people worldwide suffer from glaucoma.
It's the second most prevalent, yet preventable, cause of blindness.
It knows no age, race, or one is immune.
What you don't know can blind you, but what you do know can save your sight!

As a firm believer that each of us has the primary responsibility for our own health care, I appreciate the advice and encouragement Edith provides."
