Eye experts warn of UK “glaucoma epidemic”

Eye experts claim there could be a glaucoma epidemic in the UK by 2050.

They’re predicting an 85 per cent increase in the condition – with an estimated 1-point-3 million cases.

Late diagnosis can lead to total blindness – so people are being urged to have regular eye tests.

Karen Osborn, chief executive of the International Glaucoma Association, said: ‘The majority of people who are diagnosed early with glaucoma will retain useful sight for life. Most will be treated with medical eye drops.

“Unfortunately we know from calls to our helpline that many people aren’t told about how to put the drop in the eye correctly, or aren’t advised about the aids that are available to help them.”
