Together we can help people living with glaucoma

Did you know that 150,000 Australians are unaware that they have glaucoma and are at risk of losing their precious eyesight? 

Glaucoma Australia's mission is to raise awareness, educate and support the community and fund ground-breaking research to eliminate glaucoma blindness. 

Without our generous supporters, we simply could not continue to improve the quality of life of people affected by glaucoma today, tomorrow and into the future. Whether you are a volunteer, fundraiser, donor or support group co-ordinator, every effort makes a positive impact and is greatly appreciated.

Shabnam's story

When I found out that I had glaucoma I was very upset but eventually I accepted it and understood that it’s manageable.

Vivian's Story

'I could not recall if my parents had suffered from glaucoma, but was told to advise my immediate family to have regular eye tests, as there is a high hereditary risk associated with the disease...'

Wilma's story

I am 90 years old, and I have had glaucoma for 8 years. I have sensitive eyes and I'm unable to go outside in bright sunlight.

Lesley's story

'You do have glaucoma.' The words I had been dreading. Four words and I feel as if my feet have been swept out from under me.
