Glaucoma New Zealand is a non-government funded charitable trust established in 2002 with a mission to eliminate blindness from glaucoma.  We do this through nationwide awareness and education initiatives as well as supporting New Zealand based research.

Glaucoma NZ’s activities include:

  • Annual public awareness campaign to aid early detection of glaucoma
  • Regular public meetings to educate people with glaucoma and those with an interest in glaucoma, to help them understand more about the disease and treatments
  • A glaucoma membership information package (membership is free)
  • “Eyelights” publication – a regular newsletter sent free to our members
  • Supporting and informing people with glaucoma
  • Participating in education of health professionals involved in glaucoma care
  • Supporting research into glaucoma.
