Dear colleagues,

Welcome to the UK and Eire Glaucoma Society website. The Society (UKEGS) is a national scientific society and a non-profit organisation. The aims of this society are:.

  • To establish personal contacts and to promote the exchange of knowledge between glaucoma specialists and those involved in the management of glaucoma patients in the UK and Eire.
  • To stimulate glaucoma research by bringing together basic scientists and clinicians involved in glaucoma research, thereby establishing a scientific community with similar interests, aims and objectives together with a sense of comradeship and active co-operation.
  • To promote an interest in glaucoma as a sub-speciality in trainee ophthalmologists and those in related occupations.
  • To keep contact with other glaucoma societies within and outside the two nations.
  • To promote, protect and foster the interests and care of people having or at risk of developing glaucoma.
