We are deeply saddened to tell you that Dr Stephen Drance passed away on 2 September at the age of 95 on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia.

Stephen was a giant in our field, vastly expanding our understanding of glaucoma in innumerable diverse areas.

His legacy is immeasurable. More than anything else, he had the wisdom, patience, and charm that made being with him and learning from him an absolute delight. He treated his patients with the utmost kindness and respect while continuing to ask the bigger questions. He had a healthy skepticism of dogma but respected any viewpoint with kindness and deference. He never tired of learning and told us many times that curiosity is what makes us excel.

The world has lost a legend. This unique and truly remarkable human being has touched the lives of so many people around the world.

Today we honor you, Dr Stephen Drance.

The Film Festival aims to put storytelling power in the hands of glaucoma experts and seeks to showcase the role of individuals and communities as champions for glaucoma prevention, diagnosis and treatment.

The festival offers a versatile way to learn and spark the conversation about glaucoma in creative ways. It features films directly or indirectly related to glaucoma, that explore and highlight the disease locally, nationally and globally. Our goal is to screen films that demonstrate, educate, inspire and encourage a change, to eliminate blindness and visual disability due to glaucoma around the world.

Get inspired by the WGC-2019 Film Festival winner, submitted by Talvir Sidhu, India, titled “Bleb Rescue Operations”: ow.ly/o7l650B2ir6
