Cure Glaucoma Foundation (CGF) was established in 2014 by a group of ophthalmologists in order to make a global impact in glaucoma research and glaucoma care. We are dedicated to preventing vision loss related to glaucoma.
CGF’s core mission is to eradicate glaucoma by funding transformational research to advance treatments and to find a cure.
CGF sponsors Medical Mission Trips to provide care for patients and fellowship training for ophthalmologists in underserved countries.
Support Cure Glaucoma Foundation
Your donation matters! Your contributions will help us achieve our mission to provide access to quality glaucoma care, fund transformation research, disseminate knowledge through global outreach efforts, and give glaucoma aid to underserved communities.
Periodically Cure Glaucoma Foundation will showcase the story of a patient who is being treated for their glaucoma and is living their life to the fullest.
