The WGA acts in the interests of patients by providing glaucoma experts with the support and tools they need to deliver the best possible care. The WGA does this by:

  • Disseminating evidence-based, scientific knowledge through the World Glaucoma Congress, 2 scientific journals, newsletters, and the Glaucoma Consensus Initiative.
  • Driving glaucoma awareness by organizing the World Glaucoma Week.
  • Supporting promising young ophthalmologists from developing countries with the Fellowship Program.
  • Providing a wealth of scientific content, easily accessible on the WGA website, used by some 10,000 visitors each month.
