Our Mission as Your Glaucoma Ally
Whether you are a patient, family member, caregiver, or healthcare professional, The Glaucoma Community is designed to support you. Our mission is to provide you with trustworthy, comprehensive, and extensively vetted resources about glaucoma to help you make informed health and lifestyle decisions.
Developed in collaboration with Prevent Blindness, this unique digital education platform and mobile app centers around comprehensive, extensively vetted, and trustworthy resources about glaucoma. All of our content is written by expert health writers, with guidance from a Content Advisory Council that consists of glaucoma experts and advisors.
The platform is free to all users and comes equipped with a series of useful, community-oriented features to best serve individuals with glaucoma. These include the Newsfeed, which is updated daily with new article summaries on glaucoma-related topics, and the Community Chat, a moderated social wall where users can connect to share their experiences, advice with one another, and provide a source of support.
The Glaucoma Community is made possible by support from Prevent Blindness—the nation’s leading voluntary eye health and safety organization dedicated to preventing blindness and preserving sight—and other national partners, in addition to a grant from The Allergan Foundation. The Glaucoma Community’s content and editorial decisions are independent of any commercial influence or bias.

We hope The Glaucoma Community platform serves your needs, and we look forward to your feedback! Please contact us to share any questions, comments, or concerns you may have.
