Event: Preventing sight loss in an ageing population

November 2016

As we age, we are at greater risk of particular eye diseases and, if not treated, of losing our sight.

Many eye diseases are asymptomatic in their early stages and patients are often unaware of their condition until the disease is more advanced. Eye diseases are also often a co-morbidity to non-communicable diseases, such as diabetes.  All too often this vision loss is irreversible.

The event is kindly hosted by MEP Marian Harkin and MEP Heinz Becker, and is organized by EFAB, ECV and EU-EYE.
