Glaucoma Australia aims to minimise sight disability from glaucoma by:
- increasing community awareness and understanding of glaucoma and the need for regular eye checks
- supporting glaucoma patients and their families particularly with information
- funding glaucoma research.
Glaucoma Australia disseminates a newsletter and information about new developments in glaucoma medicines, diagnostic equipment and therapeutic procedures. Glaucoma Australia Support Groups in most States provide, through guest speakers, education and information on glaucoma, and members offer mutual support to glaucoma sufferers, their families and friends.
