Welcome to the UK and Éire Glaucoma Society website.
UK and Eire Glaucoma Society (UKEGS) is a non-profit national scientific society, and part of Glaucoma UK, which aims to:
UKEGS proudest achievement is its annual two-day conference aimed mainly at the ophthalmology community, but increasingly of interest to optometrists and others. The conference is held over two days towards the end of each year and is hosted in the hometown of the current Chair.
For the first time, our 2020 conference will be hosted digitally in light of the global pandemic.
Glaucoma UK and UKEGS co-fund an annual glaucoma research award of £50,000 – £70,000 for high quality research that enhances the detection and treatment of glaucoma and improves patients’ quality of life.
To give you a flavour of UKÉGS annual meetings, here are some photos from events put on in the previous years.
