Research in Glaucoma

Glaucoma New Zealand is pleased to facilitate research into glaucoma in New Zealand.

Research is fundamental to any progress in our understanding of glaucoma and how to prevent blindness from it. Research projects cover a wide variety of aspects such as how the eye maintains good health, why the optic nerve is susceptible in different people, how to detect glaucoma early, and the best methods to treat and manage this eye disease. All research is directed to a final common goal: to prevent blindness from glaucoma.

It’s only thanks to the generosity of our supporters that we’re able to fund research that touches the lives of thousands of people living with glaucoma. If you have an interest in supporting research into glaucoma in New Zealand please consider a donation.
