Everyone knows someone with glaucoma – the leading cause of preventable blindness. It is estimated that 67 million people worldwide have glaucoma, including more than 3 million people in the United States. In more than 9 out of 10 cases, blindness from glaucoma could have been prevented by early detection and treatment.
The Glaucoma Foundation is an international not-for-profit organization dedicated to eradicating blindness from glaucoma by funding critical research programs aimed at finding new treatments and seeking cures for glaucoma. Although great strides have been made since The Glaucoma Foundation´s inception in 1984, there are still many people who are unaware of the dangers of glaucoma, and the search for cures continues.
