Free Glaucoma Screenings, January 31


After cataracts, glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness in African Americans. Half of those with glaucoma don’t know they have it.

  • Glaucoma strikes earlier and progresses faster in African Americans.
  • The risk for glaucoma is 20% higher if glaucoma is in your family.

January is  National Glaucoma Awareness Month, and the Oregon Academy of Ophthalmology is sponsoring free glaucoma screenings with an ophthalmologist, at our Multicultural Senior Center on Friday, January 31, 2014 from 10:30am-12:30pm.
