The Philippine Glaucoma Foundation (PGF) disseminates information about glaucoma to the general population through print media, radio, television, online media and lay forums particularly during World Glaucoma Week which is a worldwide awareness activity held during March every year.
The Foundation supports professional education on glaucoma. We hold workshops on the glaucoma diagnosis and treatment all over the country usually in cooperation with the local society of ophthalmologists. The faculty of the workshops, who are all members of the Philippine Glaucoma Society (PGS), conduct lectures, case presentations and case consults on various topics in the diagnosis and management of glaucoma for audiences composed of practicing ophthalmologists and ophthalmology residents. Some of the major cities that have been visited include Cebu, Cagayan de Oro, Baguio, Clark, Davao, Iloilo, Tuguegarao, and Metro Manila. We also support the year-round continuing medical education activities of the PGS that are held for the benefit of practicing ophthalmologists and residents alike such as the congresses, instructional courses and symposia.
The Foundation continues to sponsor glaucoma laser treatment or glaucoma surgery for countless indigent glaucoma patients who would otherwise not have access to these procedures.
The Foundation currently supports the Philippine Glaucoma Society in its glaucoma research efforts and we plan to provide research grants to Filipino ophthalmologists and ophthalmology residents interested in glaucoma.
