We’re passionate about supporting clinicians and scientists to carry out cutting edge research into glaucoma detection, care and treatment. We don’t just help by funding research. Glaucoma UK is the charity that researchers approach when they’re looking for people to join in new clinical trials, and this is where you come in.
If you’re living with glaucoma and are interested in taking part in research studies that will help improve diagnosis, care and treatment opportunities click here to read about research we’ve funded and experiences of others who’ve helped in recent clinical trials.

Rosie Lindsay, a PhD student at Anglia Ruskin University, is carrying out research on physical activity among people with vision loss. As part of the research, Rosie is conducting a survey aimed at adults in the UK living with sight loss. The aim of the survey is to understand who people with sight loss would take physical activity advice from, and what support they would like following this advice. The survey will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete and will close on 31 December 2021. For more information and to take part, click here.
A person’s glaucoma can affect the lives of partners and family members, but this important impact is often ignored. Researchers at Cardiff University have created a simple questionnaire to measure this impact. They need your help to test this questionnaire before it can be used routinely to better understand and care for the health and social needs of partners and families. The researchers invite people with glaucoma and their partners or other family members (aged at least 18 years) to complete this 5-minute survey. Click here to complete the survey.
