Register now for a special Live YouTube Q&A event with Optometrist Michelle Phan on the topic 'How to encourage family members to get tested for glaucoma'.
Michelle will discuss how to encourage your family members to get tested and open up a conversation about glaucoma.
If you have glaucoma, your first degree relatives (parents, siblings and children) are at greater risk - having an almost 1 in 4 chance of developing glaucoma in their own lifetime, and that risk doubles if the relative has advanced glaucoma. So knowing your family history is important.
If you haven’t had a conversation about glaucoma with your loved ones, then now is the time.
Join us on Thursday 14th July at 6PM AEST to discuss this important health condition and to hear some tips and tricks to help open up the conversation at home.
