Buddy Scheme 

If you’ve just been diagnosed or you’re facing a new glaucoma treatment or surgery, it’s normal to feel nervous, scared or apprehensive. Speaking to someone who has already been through these treatments can be very reassuring.

Our buddy scheme can pair you up for a simple phone call or series of chats with someone who has first hand experience.

“I probably wouldn’t have been brave enough to have my trabeculectomy if I hadn’t spoken with my buddy. Because I was matched with someone who had already had the procedure it gave me the reassurance I needed to make an informed decision.”
