Support groups

Meeting other people with glaucoma is a great way of sharing information and experiences. Support groups are also attended by health care professionals, so you’ll have an opportunity to speak with them in a relaxed atmosphere and ask the questions that matter most to you. Every group is different, but many also have guest speakers, run social events and arrange fundraising activities.

Please be aware that during the Coronavirus emergency, all support group meetings have been postponed. Please contact the relevant organiser for details of when they’ll be back.

What are digital glaucoma support groups?

Our digital glaucoma support groups provide a source of information, advice and support. We organised a series of support groups on a range of topics throughout lockdown. You can watch the recording of these sessions below.

Our digital support groups are brand new. We would be very interested to hear your feedback and ideas for future sessions.

I wish I had attended the group years ago, so thank you very much for inviting me along.

I immensely enjoyed the meeting. It was a lovely blend of new research information and practical, helpful tips for improving my glaucoma self-care.

I’m now looking forward to my next medical consultation where I can discuss my glaucoma with greater confidence.

For more information or to find your local support group, use the search tool (coming soon!), call our helpline on 01233 64 81 70 or email helpline@glaucoma.uk. We’re open 9.30am – 5.00pm on weekdays.

We hope to see you at a support group soon!
