Green Color Wristbands To Support Eye Cancer Awareness

Use Custom Bracelets For Prevention, Education

Raising awareness is very important for every cause. You can use custom-designed silicone bracelets to support your cause amazingly. Nearly 2,600 people are diagnosed with eye cancer each year, which includes all types of cancer that start in the eye. Eye cancers can be successfully treated when they are discovered early. Unfortunately, this does not always happen and many people with eye cancer do not seek treatment until the cancer is more advanced. That’s why awareness is so important. Silicone eye cancer awareness wristbands can spread the message of prevention that may save someone’s life.

Eye Cancer Awareness Bracelets

The awareness color for eye cancer is often green. When you create custom awareness bracelets, you can choose any color, or combination of colors that you’d like. You can put any message you’d like on your eye cancer awareness bracelet, from something simple to something specific to your cause or event.

Facts about Eye Cancer Awareness

As with many types of cancer, early diagnosis is key to a strong prognosis. Here are some important facts about eye cancer:

  • 2,580 new cancers (mainly melanomas) of the eye and orbit: 1,360 in men and 1,220 in women
  • 270 deaths from cancers of the eye and orbit: 140 in men and 130 in women
  • Intraocular melanoma is the most common type of cancer that develops within the eyeball in adults, but it is still fairly rare.
  • Primary intraocular lymphoma is a type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Most people with primary intraocular lymphoma are elderly or have immune system problems such as AIDS.
  • Often melanomas of the eye are found during a routine eye exam. When the doctor looks through the pupil at the back of the eye, he or she may see a dark spot that might be an early melanoma.
  • Retinoblastoma is a type of eye cancer that affects children.
  • 200 to 300 children are diagnosed with retinoblastoma each year in the United States. It is more common in infants and very young children than in older children.
  • The average age of children when they are diagnosed is 2. It rarely occurs in children older than 6.
