My Story…

Dr. Graham Trope formed the Glaucoma Research Society in 1988 to raise funds to find a cause and a cure for glaucoma. The Society is committed to funding research into the causes, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of glaucoma. We are the only Canadian charity solely dedicated to funding glaucoma research. Since 1989, it has raised more than five million dollars in support of 247 research projects.


Glaucoma Research Society of Canada uses the money raised through fundraising to fund groundbreaking research into the causes, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of glaucoma – one of the leading cause of blindness in North America. The board is dedicated to limiting administrative costs to ensure as much revenue is put forward for research as possible. Please help us as we work to find a cure!
