Article by Sapna Nand
Orthoptist and Senior Patient Educator at Glaucoma Australia
Sapna Nand graduated from the University of Sydney in 2008 with a Bachelor of Applied Science (Orthoptics). Since graduation, she has worked in private ophthalmology clinics, public hospital eye clinics, and Clinical Trials in retinal diseases.

As Glaucoma Australia's Senior Patient Educator, her primary role is to  educate patients on glaucoma and providing them with emotional support throughout their journey. Sapna and her team endeavour to increase appointments and treatment adherence, and help detect undiagnosed cases. All this work helps prevent irreversible blindness from glaucoma and maintains a positive quality of life for people living with glaucoma.

Sapna will be undertaking post graduate studies to become a qualified Counsellor. She believes her qualifications as an eye care professional, combined with a formal qualification with psychotherapy will greatly help her role as a Patient Educator and benefit the individuals and families supported by Glaucoma Australia.
