Our Mission & Passion:
Eliminate Glaucoma Blindness
Glaucoma is a leading cause of permanent blindness in the world.
Tens of millions suffer from glaucoma and thousands are blinded by this condition each year. While, with appropriate treatment, glaucoma progression can be halted - at present there is no reversing damage once it has occurred.
The Iowa Glaucoma Center has a passion for eradicating needless blindness due to glaucoma. The war on glaucoma blindness takes place on three fronts: clinical care, teaching, and research. The University of Iowa is at the forefront in all three of these arenas:
Providing the highest quality patient care with the latest technology – Learn More.
Educating clinicians, researchers, students and patients – Learn More.
Researching the causes of glaucoma and developing tools to aid in diagnosis and treatment – Learn More.
