GLAUCATHON is a term coined by Dr. Vikas Mittal at LJ Eye Institute. It is an Annual event of LJ Eye Institute. On the occasion of “World Glaucoma Week 2019” LJ Eye Institute organised Glaucathon 2019 to spread awareness about glaucoma in our society. Glaucoma is silent thief of vision and results in to compete blindness. Glaucoma do not have symptoms. In the whole world approximately 60 million people are suffering from Glaucoma. Only in India 12500000 are suffering from Glaucoma and 90% of them are not aware of this. If treatment of glaucoma not started timely then ultimately patients of glaucoma become blind. The motive of GLAUCATHON is to target those 90% and other general public so that they can get aware on time about Glaucoma.
