Health officials are still hard at work trying to reduce the leading cause of irreversible blindness in the country, glaucoma.

To mark the start of Glaucoma Week 2018, dozens of people attended a Church service at the Abundant Life Assembly.

Representative of the Ministry of Health, Dr Erwin Arthur Phillips says a heavy emphasis this year will be the promotion of early screening and treatment.

The intention is to avoid the myriad of problems that can occur if the illness isn't detected early.
