June 17,2017: Please note that this site has been undergoing major updates and will continue to evolve.  Thanks to all who helped by voting for our new logo; still working on balancing the colours for the drop-down menus to match the logo. Stay tuned as well for updates from our CGS@COS meeting that just concluded in Montreal including a posting about our research award winners. 


Canadian Glaucoma Society

The Canadian Glaucoma Society is a forum for fellowship trained subspecialists, general ophthalmologists, and scientists with an interest in glaucoma.  The Society meets twice each year to exchange ideas on all aspects of this sight-threatening disease. We hold a winter glaucoma meeting for members and invited speakers only, known as the CGS. Our open meeting takes place each June in conjunction with the Canadian Ophthalmological Society annual meeting. We discuss current topics from visiting speakers, members and residents in training, and have a session for free papers where the results of research topics in glaucoma are presented. We are responsible for the glaucoma portion for the main COS program and for glaucoma related Skills Transfer sessions at the meeting. The Stephen Drance Award is given for the best scientific presentation in the glaucoma research session.

This website has member and non-member areas.  The non-member section provides general information about our organization and its goals, and the application form for new member requests. The member-only section holds the archives minutes of annual meetings, and policy or other papers being discussed by members.


This site is meant to help in education but does not in any way replace being examined by a qualified eye care professional.
