We provide information for everyone who is interested in glaucoma, people who have just been diagnosed, or anyone living with glaucoma.
IGA are a UK based charity, committed to preventing unnecessary loss of sight through the condition, which is one of the most common eye disorders.
We provide support to thousands of glaucoma patients; arranging meetings in the UK through the year and providing a regular newsletter to members and friends as well as overseeing a network of support groups and fund research.
Glaucoma is the name given to a group of eye conditions in which the main nerve to the eye (the optic nerve) is damaged where it leaves the eye. This nerve carries information about what is being seen from the eye to the brain and as it becomes damaged vision is lost. This results in misty and patchy vision, with eventual loss of central vision, although this is rare.
IGA can provide leaflets, they have support groups, have a helpline, provide a buddying system. They also raise awareness and have a membership that you can join.
