Photos from the 2015 Glaucoma 360 Annual Gala

The Glaucoma 360 Annual Gala 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 benefit glaucoma research and education programs. We are most grateful to our generous donors and sponsors. The Glaucoma 360 Annual Gala took place on February 5, 2015 at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco.
