Research Icon


The Glaucoma Foundation has been funding groundbreaking glaucoma research for over 30 years.

I am truly thankful to TGF for offering such incredible patient education in the form of resources and webinars with real patients who are going through similar struggles. As with any chronic disease, we can feel very alone as patients and one of the biggest challenges is finding a network where we are supported and understood.

– Hillary G., Glaucoma Patient

Message From The President

After a most successful year, during which we made important strides
in our research and education initiatives, TGF is ringing in 2023 with
great enthusiasm.

January is Glaucoma Awareness Month. We urge all our readers to heed its call and make an appointment to have your eyes examined. Early diagnosis and ongoing treatment can save your sight. This year, to spread this message, we have expanded our observance with bus shelter posters, a radio public service announcement on WINS Radio in New York, a billboard in the borough of Queens and a greater presence on social media.
