The Association of International Glaucoma Societies

If you visit The Association of International Glaucoma Societies website at you are immediately treated to a highly produced musical number entitled Glaucoma Hymn. Here are the lyrics:

"Glaucoma, Glaucoma, Glaucoma
Constricting vision slowly
Halted by progress of science
Vision of a world united
Beyond all science knowing."

Soprano Melanie Greve delivers a near operatic rendition of the above. The Lyrics and Composition were created by Erik Greve, the arrangement done by Tom Löwenthal. You can download an MP3 of the song as well.

The purpose of The Association of International Glaucoma Societies is:

  • To further develop an effective world-wide organisation to realise common goals and improve standards for glaucoma management and research;

  • To facilitate and co-ordinate communication and collaboration between Glaucoma Societies, Glaucoma Industries, Glaucoma Foundations and Glaucoma Patient Societies and other organisations in the field;

  • To maintain and update global guidelines for glaucoma diagnosis and treatment;

  • To maintain and update global guidelines on publication and reporting on glaucoma treatment;

  • To classify, review and disseminate information on glaucoma:

  • To improve the awareness of glaucoma;

  • To create a registry of Glaucoma Societies and glaucomatologists;

  • To create a forum for exchange on global glaucoma research, screening, prevention of Glaucoma Blindness and WHO relationships
