Glaucoma support group’s meeting

MORE than 30 people attended the first meeting of the Glaucoma Support Group for patients in Hastings, Bexhill and Rother at the Conquest Hospital last month.

Presentations about glaucoma, treatment of the condition and impact were given by consultant ophthalmologist Pieter Gouws and Sue McGilveray, from the International Glaucoma Association (IGA). The next meeting will be advertised well in advance and is open to anyone with glaucoma or who cares for someone with glaucoma in Hastings, Bexhill and Rother. Anyone who missed the first meeting can ring Huma Thomas on 01424 755255 ext: 8442.
