Glaucoma is a leading cause of preventable blindness. In the UK, 11,000 people are diagnosed with the disease each year. Glaucoma is an eye disease where the optic nerve is damaged. Once sight is lost, it is gone forever. There is no cure. But blindness can be prevented. You can help change the outlook for people with or at risk of developing glaucoma. Glaucoma doesn’t have to mean sight loss.
We are the only UK charity solely dedicated to supporting and representing people with glaucoma. We champion their needs and ensure they have the advice, care and treatment needed to help them retain useful sight for life. We provide information and support, fund research related to early diagnosis and treatment, and educate professionals and the public about the condition.
