International Glaucoma Association: Family stand in a line, arms open

The IGA is the charity for people with glaucoma. We provide information, literature, advice and fund essential research to prevent unnecessary loss of sight through early detection, diagnosis and treatment.

Glaucoma is a term that describes a group of eye conditions that affect vision. The main nerve in the eye (the optic nerve) becomes damaged usually as a result of increased pressure in the eye. This can lead to misty and patchy vision which worsens if left untreated.

The IGA is an important funder of research, and has spent approximately £2.5 million in helping professionals pursue research into the diagnosis, treatment and management of glaucoma. This includes the funded position of the IGA Chair of Ophthalmololgy for Glaucoma and Allied Studies, which currently resides with Professor David Garway-Heath.
