Who We Are

Dr. Graham TropeDr. Graham Trope formed the Glaucoma Research Society of Ontario in 1988 to raise funds to find a cause and a cure for glaucoma. In 1997, the Society became the Glaucoma Research Society of Canada, a national registered charity committed to funding research into the causes, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of glaucoma.

The Glaucoma Research Society of Canada is the only Canadian charity solely dedicated to funding glaucoma research. Since 1989, it has raised more than six million dollars in support of 319 research projects.

The Society’s mission is to support new ideas at their inception with seed money. Research proposals are peer-reviewed, and a highly regarded Scientific Advisory Committee, chaired by Dr. Trope, reviews the recommendations for the Society which awards research grants annually.
