Travel insurance for people with Glaucoma
Glaucoma is a commonly occurring eye condition, usually caused by a build-up of pressure which over time damages the optical nerve. It’s a common condition, but one which most frequently affects older people in their 70’s and onwards. Although it’s a curable illness, failure to identify it can result in blindness, so it’s important to have regular eye check-ups.
We understand that insuring a medical condition can be frustrating, and we want to make it as easy as possible for you to get travel insurance. So, if you’re suffering from glaucoma and are concerned about whether travel insurance will be able to cover your medical condition, or if you’ve had trouble getting covered in the past, we may be able to help you.
One of the things that means we stand out from the crowd is that we consider all diagnosed medical conditions. You can go through our simple medical screening process online, or contact us to get a quote over the phone.
