Glaucoma, a serious eye condition leading to irreversible blindness if left untreated, looms ever-present. Raising awareness about this health issue is critical.
II. The Glaucoma Situation in the Philippines
As of current statistical data, over six million people in the Philippines are at risk for glaucoma.
