The Screen, Protect, Cure campaign educates about the importance of regular eye screening, followed by protecting your vision once you are diagnosed with glaucoma. Groundbreaking, collaborative research will ultimately cure glaucoma — the second leading cause of blindness in the world.

Test your Glaucoma Eye-Q
Glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible blindness.
Three million Americans have glaucoma.
Fifty percent of the glaucoma cases worldwide are still undetected.
You are ten times more likely to develop glaucoma if a direct relative has it.
Glaucoma is an eye disease that usually has no symptoms in its early stages. Without proper treatment, glaucoma can lead to blindness. The good news is that with regular eye exams, early detection, and treatment, you can preserve your sight.
Assess your risk for glaucoma
A glaucoma diagnosis can be a scary and uncertain time. By working with your doctor, you can create a treatment plan to stabilize the disease and prevent vision loss.
A major factor in the treatment of your glaucoma is you. Along with being consistent with your regular exams and treatments, a healthy lifestyle can aid in protecting your vision.
Protecting your vision starts with YOU
Glaucoma Research Foundation is dedicated to scientific research that deepens our understanding of glaucoma, generates new treatments, and will ultimately cure a disease that is the second leading cause of blindness.
Projects we’ve made possible have already changed the game in glaucoma care, starting with the first study to reveal that lowering eye pressure preserves vision. More recently, scientists we’ve funded have made discoveries that could protect or regrow retinal ganglion cells and axons damaged by glaucoma.
We are on a mission to create a world free from glaucoma.
