About Glaucoma Research Foundation
The Glaucoma Research Foundation (GRS) is a national, voluntary organization dedicated to protecting and preserving the sight and independence of people with glaucoma through research and education. Glaucoma is a condition characterized by abnormally increased pressure of the fluid of the eye, potentially resulting in partial or complete loss of vision without appropriate treatment. Established in 1978, the Glaucoma Research Foundation provides information and support concerning the various forms of glaucoma including normal tension, pigmentary, congenital, childhood, open-angle, closed-angle, exfoliative, pseudoexfoliative, and secondary glaucoma. The foundation engages in patient and professional education and conducts and supports various glaucoma research efforts including the Glaucoma Family History Project and the Normal Tension Glaucoma Study.
