Research Update: Catalyst for a Cure Vision Restoration Team

This “Innovations in Glaucoma” Webinar was presented April 27, 2020. Watch this exclusive update from the Catalyst for a Cure Vision Restoration Team as they highlight the consortium’s progress toward restoring vision lost from glaucoma.

Funded by Glaucoma Research Foundation in San Francisco, the goal of the Catalyst for a Cure (CFC) Vision Restoration Initiative is to better understand what specifically causes vision loss in glaucoma and then to identify targeted interventions for protecting and restoring the neurons responsible for vision.
