We are grateful for research support from our industry partners, who are helping us identify better ways to care for patients with glaucoma

FireCyte Therapeutics

Working with us to identify novel biomarkers that predict the risk of glaucoma progression.

iCare USA

Providing support to study how fluctuations in eye pressure throughout the day and night may contribute to the risk of vision loss in glaucoma.
