Promising Research News
Thanks to the dedication of pioneering researchers, significant strides in glaucoma care have saved sight in millions of patients worldwide, made possible through research and funding by foundations such as ours.
While research has led to major advances in glaucoma care, adults and children with glaucoma across the globe are still going blind. Untreated glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide. There is more work to be done.
Our Research Funding Philosophy
The mission of Cure Glaucoma Foundation (CGF) is to improve glaucoma care by funding transformational research, disseminating knowledge and expanding treatment availability through global outreach efforts
The founders of CGF believe that by joining together we can pool the collective brainpower of researchers, physicians, patients and volunteers to discover advanced treatments and a cure for this disease.
Cure Glaucoma Foundation’s Research Committee guides CGF’s mission to fund transformational and innovative research related to glaucoma. The research committee will develop and implement research selection strategies and determine research priorities for the Cure Glaucoma Foundation.
Committee members are responsible to the community and Board of Trustees for monitoring the implementation of research strategies, making recommendations for research projects for funding by CGF, reviewing grant applications and participating in the grant recipient selection processes.
