Glaucoma Research Foundation’s Annual Gala kicked off the 8th Annual Glaucoma 360 on January 31st in San Francisco.
This fundraising event, co-chaired by Nancy and Patrick Forster, honors visionary leaders and volunteers committed to making a difference in the lives of people with glaucoma. Thanks to matching funds and generous support from Gala attendees, more than $660,000 was raised to support Glaucoma Research Foundation’s research and education programs.
On the following day, the New Horizons Forum was held with more than 50 companies and institutions participating in this full day of presentations and panel discussions dedicated to highlighting innovations in glaucoma. Special sessions featured advances in vision restoration, telemedicine, and glaucoma genetics.
The third and final day of Glaucoma 360 focused on continuing education for practicing ophthalmologists and optometrists.
Next year’s Glaucoma 360 events will be held from February 6 to 8, 2020, at the Grand Hyatt in San Francisco.
