Glaucoma is a neurodegenerative disorder affecting millions of individuals worldwide. In 2013, the prevalence of glaucoma worldwide among people aged 40-80 years was estimated at 64.3 million, and expected to climb to 76.0 million in 2020 and 111.8 million in 2040. In order to prevent the symptoms of blindness and treat the morbidity associated with glaucoma, early detection and treatment is imperative. Unfortunately, not much is being done by the individuals themselves, in the absence of proactive efforts by the governments and policymakers.
