UAB Launches Glaucoma Detection Program with CDC

Medical testing of various human samples including blood, urine and chemical.


The University of Alabama at Birmingham is launching an innovative telemedicine glaucoma detection program with independent optometrists located adjacent to two central Alabama Walmart Vision Centers. The program, funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is primarily aimed at early detection of glaucoma in an at-risk population — African-Americans over age 40.
