Welcome to the Glaucoma Research Society

The Glaucoma Research Society is a public interest, non-profit scientific association of outstanding glaucoma researchers that provides a forum to discuss and stimulate compelling or innovative research to prevent glaucoma-related disability worldwide.

The Society fosters discussion and interaction through biennial meetings that engage leading glaucoma clinicians and researchers to synthesize new and existing knowledge and to identify strategies for future basic, clinical and translational research.

Society membership is by nomination and election.  There are currently 86 active, 35 emeritus and 6 honorary members representing 26 countries.
