The Philippine Glaucoma Society


Welcome to the Philippine Glaucoma Society website. The Philippine Glaucoma Society is a national, non-profit association of glaucoma sub-specialists from all over the nation. Our directory is designed to locate a glaucoma specialist in your area. Educational materials on glaucoma are also featured for the lay person as well as basic and clinical information for the practicing ophthalmologist. Our networking with other societies within the Asia Pacific region promotes collaboration in research, education and training to ensure high quality care for the Asian glaucoma patient. The society conducts annual meetings in conjunction with the Philippine Academy of Ophthalmology Annual Convention late in the end of the year. In December 2017, we invite you to join us at the SMX Convention Center in celebration of our 20th anniversary with a full day glaucoma symposium on various glaucoma topics from speakers coming from both international and local faculties. In closing, allow me to mention the Philippine Glaucoma Foundation where we accept donations that will aid in the surgical treatment of our countless Filipino brothers and sisters against the blindness that is glaucoma. Help us, help them.
