United States-Many World Glaucoma Day activities occurred across the United States. In Pittsburgh, the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Eye Center placed informational posters in 10 heavily populated bus shelters and issued a press release. Both activities announced World Glaucoma Day and encouraged people to set up a screening appointment. The posters were posted on March 9 and are expected to remain up for at least a month.
Additional screening events were scheduled for many locations, including the WalMart Vision Center in South Bend, IN; Urban Eye MD Associates in Boston; the State Legislative Building in Hartford, CT; and Jones Eye Clinic in Little Rock, AR.
