July is Glaucoma Awareness month. Here at Care Pharmacy we are having eye health month and encouraging everyone to be proactive and take care of their eyes.
Glaucoma is often called the "silent thief of sight" because it can slowly steal your sight without you being aware of it. If you are 45 years of older you should have an eye exam every 5 years and every 3 years from 60.
More than half of New Zealanders with Glaucoma don't know the have it and you can be legally blind before you notice symptoms.
Come in and talk to Janine today about this or any other eye issues. If you would like to read more about this or make a donation, please visit Glaucoma NZ.
Below Janine talks about the correct way to instill eye drops into the eyes.
