We see you and we hear you. Childhood glaucoma is a rare type of glaucoma that is diagnosed before someone turns 18 years old. Living with childhood glaucoma can be challenging, but there is little research out there that tells us about how the condition may impact on someone’s life.
A team of researchers at the Australian and New Zealand Registry of Advanced Glaucoma (ANZRAG) at Flinders University, Adelaide, are dedicated to putting the spotlight on childhood glaucoma. They want to create better support systems and promote awareness of this rare condition.
So far, the ANZRAG team have interviewed almost 50 adults with childhood glaucoma and asked them about how the condition has or has not affected their lives in some way.
From these interviews, they have made a questionnaire to measure the impact of childhood glaucoma and need as many people as possible to complete it. It only takes 10 to 20 minutes.
If you have been diagnosed with glaucoma before the age of 18 years, the ANZRAG would love to hear from you.
