Glaucoma Association Forum

Our forum is moving!

Our current forum will close on 29 June.

As we are soon to become Glaucoma UK, we are excited to announce our new website forum will be moving to the world’s largest online support network- HealthUnlocked. We have our own community, currently International Glaucoma Association. People with questions or comments about glaucoma and related topics can post them on the site. Much like on our existing forum, people can respond and our staff will moderate responses. However, there are more things we can do with this site compared to the existing forum – we can post surveys or tell you about events and you can make friends with other members of the community. One big advantage of using an external site like HealthUnlocked is that they take care of spam or other junk posts. That means we can focus on getting the right information to you. You can also join communities linked to other conditions or topics.

Simply register here and join our community by typing International Glaucoma Association in the search bar, then click on “Community” you can then add yourself to our page. If you have already registered, then just click here to join.

You can still post to this forum as normal until 29 June. However, you may find HealthUnlocked a better experience – why not try it today? If you need any help with signing up, please contact our helpline on 01233 64 81 70 or

Do you or someone close to you have glaucoma and wish to discuss it or are you only using this "Glaucoma Forum" to advertise your tutoring site?????

Which is not what it is here for.

Hi sledgehammer.

i would be very interested to hear of your exact treatment. and of course the way you are affected now if in any way at all?

My son has congenital glaucoma and has had two goniotomys in each eye now. he still needs more and possibly a trabeculectomy/ loctomy.

did you only have one op and if so which one did you have.
thanks for posting mesage and hope to speak soon.

sadly i do not know mr rice.

yours nick

Hi all,

I'm new here, but i just wanted to share something with all. My brother has glaucoma. Initially i did not know what it was, so i went online and did some research myself. I came across a site called caring.comThey had informative details about glaucoma. I just want to share this with you. Hope it helps you all.

If you follow a healthy diet you should be receiving all the vitamins and nutrients needed and there is not need to look elsewhere. However if you want to take vitamin supplements we have not been made aware of any concerns if you do. We noticed that the article states that the supplement can improve your vision. If you have been diagnosed with glaucoma your vision cannot be improved but can be maintained.
