Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that damage the optic nerve; it is the most common cause of irreversible blindness in the world. A diagnosis of glaucoma can be devastating, but through early detection, diagnosis, and treatment, it is possible to preserve if not restore vision.

The Foundation works to encourage and support basic and applied research in glaucoma, to gain and disseminate new information about the causes and treatment of glaucoma, and to further efforts to identify and develop novel approaches to preserve visual function and reverse blindness caused by glaucoma.

The Foundation's Grant-in-Aid Program has awarded millions of dollars in seed money for cutting-edge research projects. Preliminary data from these projects have frequently been used to support proposals for larger grants from entities such as the National Institutes of Health.
