Glaucoma Research Society of Canada

Glaucoma Research Society of Canada

Our mission:
To fund new ideas at their inception

The Society’s independently judged, peer-reviewed research grants are highly valued by researchers and considered important and prestigious within the scientific community.

The Society has funded research projects by most of Canada’s top glaucoma researchers – doctors and scientists interested in finding new treatments and in preventing blindness from glaucoma.

Their research includes:

  • seeking to protect good nerve cells in the eye and repair damaged ones
  • searching for genes related to glaucoma
  • improving blood flow to the eye, and
  • making glaucoma surgery easier for the patient.
