CNIB’s glaucoma survey

CNIB reports that while glaucoma tends to run in families and approximately 250,000 Canadians have it, “only one-third of Canadians (33 per cent) have spoken to their immediate families to learn whether glaucoma could be a hereditary concern.” As well, “most Canadians (71 per cent) are unaware that you could have glaucoma, but still be able to see perfectly well.” Read more here: New CNIB survey finds many Canadians less than well-informed about family history of glaucoma
