Advances in Glaucoma Treatment To Prevent Blindness

Worldwide, 78 million people have glaucoma, which is one of the leading causes of irreversible blindness around the world.

We find out from Dr Puspha Raman, a Consultant Ophthalmologist & Eye Surgeon, as well as a Committee Member of the Malaysian Glaucoma Society.
