Glaucoma is the leading cause of global irreversible blindness. Blindness ranked 3rd (after cancer and heart disease) as people’s major fear. BiCOM Inc. with its Non-Corneal and Through-the-Eyelid DIATON Tonometer is challenging the “Sneak Thief of Sight” through awareness and screening events. BiCOM is advising and guiding all of its distributors located in over 60 countries in North and South America, Europe, Asia and Middle East to participate in the World Glaucoma Week on March 6th-12th through Screening and Awareness campaigns.
Since IntraOcular Pressure (IOP) is one of the major risk factors for developing Glaucoma, early detection is the key to preventing blindness.
