View descriptionShare

Coming up on the show this week Sam speaks with Callum Padgett, host of a new children’s program on Vision Australia Radio called Happy Pants, taking place every Saturday at 10am starting April 2. Happy Pants is aimed at kids who are blind or have low vision or a print disability to learn and play in a way that’s fun, engaging and, most importantly, accessible.

Later on in the show Conrad Browne catches up with head of ophthalmology at Flinders University Professor Jamie Craig who shares some take home messages for people to look after their eye health and prevent glaucoma in particular. You’ll also hear from Jamie about some exciting new developments in testing to detect the early signs of glaucoma before it’s able to cause severe damage.

Jamie's research team at the Australian and New Zealand Registry of Advanced Glaucoma (ANZRAG) would be happy to hear from anyone who would like to provide a blood or saliva sample for our genetic research.

They are especially interested in those glaucoma cases with severe vision loss, and young age of diagnosis. To find out more you can visit their website at, or send them an email on

Then finally we wrap up this week with some news and information.
