The International Glaucoma Association (IGA)
WHO ARE WE?
The International Glaucoma Association (IGA) is a charity,
formed in 1974, which provides detailed information and reassurance
for glaucoma sufferers throughout the world. The IGA also
promotes better awareness of the disease, campaigns for improved
glaucoma services and funds considerable research into glaucoma.
WHAT DO WE DO?
The IGA provides information literature and advice of a general
nature to anyone who is interested in, or concerned about glaucoma.
Another major activity is increasing awareness of glaucoma. Each
year a national awareness week is held ('FROG' week - For Relief
Of Glaucoma) which aims to build general awareness of glaucoma as
well as communicating the need to seek the three tests necessary
to detect the disease at an early stage.
The IGA funds a large amount of research in the UK and
abroad. For the last four years, over £1/4 million was spent
annually on research ranging from visual field analysis software
through to supporting major genetic developments.
The IGA has affiliated societies in 14 countries in Europe,
Africa, Australasia and Asia, and represented members in over 60
countries throughout the world. Currently the IGA has over
14,000 members who each receive newsletters detailing the latest
developments in glaucoma. Professional membership is also available
which, in addition to the benefits of normal membership, includes
the annual subscription to 'Glaucoma Forum' the IGA's
quarterly journal for interdisciplinary discussion, up to date information
on local events, awareness building events and other IGA
