Take part in research

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.
