Glaucoma Service Foundation to Prevent Blindness
Welcome to the internet site of the Glaucoma Service Foundation to Prevent Blindness.We believe the best patient care is only possible when patients actively participate in their care and are as informed as possible about glaucoma. This site, voted one of the top five glaucoma websites in the world, provides a wealth of information as well as links to other resources.
This site provides access to unique chat sessions hosted by Glaucoma Service physicians. This chat was honored at the 2004 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology as “the premiere virtual glaucoma chat support group in the world,” which personalizes the educational outreach of the Service to an unprecedented degree. The chat support group is a cornerstone of the Service’s e-Medicine program, which includes tele-consultation, tele-informatics, and research into the practicality of tele-screening for glaucoma.
The Glaucoma Service Foundation was founded in 1979 by world renowned glaucoma specialist George L. Spaeth, MD and his late wife Ann to support glaucoma education, research and community outreach.
Special thanks to the Robison D. Harley Fund for Glaucoma Education and Research, the lead sponsor for the Annual CARES Conference.
