Glaucoma NZ publishes free education material, holds public meetings, community meetings, support groups, and maintains a web site.


Educates eye health workers to assure high quality services

Glaucoma New Zealand promotes high quality glaucoma services in both the public and the private sectors through professional educational activities, including the Glaucoma Professional Education Programme.
