Join our digital glaucoma support groups

Are you worried about your glaucoma? Concerned about a cancelled or delayed appointment? Or do you just want to understand it a little better? Want to hear from some experts and have a chance to ask your questions? We know this is a really scary time for many people, and we want to provide you with the support and advice you need.


We are running a series of digital glaucoma support groups. Like a traditional support group, which unfortunately have been cancelled due to COVID-19, there will be a talk by a glaucoma expert and a Glaucoma UK staff member and an opportunity to ask questions.


Date Talk
9 July Glaucoma for the newly diagnosed
16 July Glaucoma for the newly diagnosed
22 July Glaucoma and eye drops
29 July The glaucoma journey and how COVID-19 is changing eye care
4 August Driving and glaucoma
11 August My glaucoma is getting worse: what might happen?

Key facts:

  • The webinar will run via Zoom.
  • Each talk will be at 7pm and last one hour.
  • You can submit questions to the speaker via an in-built chat function.
  • You won’t be able to see the other participants, and you won’t be visible.

These sessions are new for us, and we’re really excited to be running them. We hope they’re helpful, but would love to how we can make them better. We are also planning more sessions for the future. If you have suggestions for topics or speakers, please send them to Joanna Bradley on

Each session will also be streamed Live on our Facebook page and available there afterwards, in case you can’t attend.
