Keeping Children's Vision in Sight

Childhood glaucoma is unusual and the cause of permanent blindness in an estimated 300,000 children worldwide.

The Children's Glaucoma Foundation a nonprofit tax-exempt organization dedicated to supporting programs for children with glaucoma.


Childhood glaucoma develops in 1 out of 10,000 children. Treatment of glaucoma can be most successful when initiated as early as possible. Both drugs and surgery are successfully used to treat childhood glaucoma.


The Children's Glaucoma Foundation was created to influence the quality of glaucoma care throughout the world through continued research, physician training and support, and assistance to affected families.


Thanks to volunteers, donations, and a gala that includes corporate sponsorships, the Children's Glaucoma Foundation has supported childhood glaucoma awareness, physician education, and basic research programs since 1999. 

We have created a Children’s Glaucoma Foundation Newsletter that will keep you informed about all the happenings of the foundation. Read about new research projects we are supporting, the progress of existing research, fundraising spotlight, upcoming events, words from patients, and more.
