We are currently in the process of installing a brand new online community system for all our valued World Glaucoma Association members. Please make sure your WGA#ONE profile is up to date for future benefits.

Check Your WGA#ONE Profile


WGA#ONE is the name of our newest online member community system which allows you to create your very own private WGA profile and provides the opportunity to directly, at any given moment, change personal details such as your email address. In the future, this profile will be linked to the delivery of exclusive WGA content, such as IGR. Soon we will be contacting you on how to check and update your profile.
