Recognizing Leadership and Innovation in Glaucoma

Launched in 2007, this annual benefit showcases the visionaries and catalysts who share Glaucoma Research Foundation's mission to prevent vision loss from glaucoma by investing in innovative research, education, and support with the ultimate goal of finding a cure.

To date, more than $3 million has been raised from this event to forward our research, education, and support programs. We are most grateful to our generous donors and sponsors for their ongoing partnership.

Includes presentation of The Catalyst Award, Glaucoma Research Foundation's highest honor, the President's Reception, the gala dinner, a live auction, and a special performance.

Event Co-Chairs: Nobuko Saito Cleary and Gary Cleary, PharmD, PhD
