We produce a quarterly magazine for our members, called IGA News. It provides in-depth articles on the research that is currently taking place into the detection, treatment and management of glaucoma. It also features news from our helpline, from our members, and from our fundraisers. There is a list at the back with the dates and locations of all of the local support groups. Members value the magazine, and in particular value the scientific research.
The magazine is sent to all members and membership costs £17.50 per year. Past copies of the magazine can be downloaded for free.
Please note: These files are in PDF format and quite large so may take some time to download.
