GRF was established in 1978 to support medical research into the causes and treatments of glaucoma. The organization also coordinates the Glaucoma Support Network, a national, telephone-based peer support network for glaucoma patients and their families (8:30 am - 5:00 pm, PST, Monday-Friday). GRF welcomes inquiries and encourages public and professional education.
