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

Hi I was wondering if there is anyone doing any research into congenital Glaucoma my son was born in 1983 and had his first operation at three months, which did not help and we were sent to Moorefields in London to see if Doctor Rice could do anything, glad to say he did, my son was given partial sight in both eyes. At age 5 his right eye ruptured and had to be removed. this did not stop my fun loving son from doing what his friends did, (some times to my horror). He has had so many operations over the years that I have lost count, the last three have been laser operations but he now has a cataract and still on medication (three different drops and diamox tablets)and is reistered blind.
Does anyone know if there is anyone who has this problem and is there an operation; or is anyone looking into this, as my sons doctor says that no one has operated on cataracts in someone with his condition.
