Welcome to the Chandler Grant Glaucoma Society

A Message from the President . . .

Welcome to the Chandler Grant Glaucoma Society website.  Since the Society was founded in 1982, its members have worked to carry on the ethical and moral values of our namesakes, Dr. Paul Chandler and Dr. W. Morton Grant.  A key focus of our members is the continuing effort to prevent blindness from glaucoma through innovative research, development of clinical applications of scientific knowledge, and raising public awareness of glaucoma.

Initial members of the Society were fellows who trained directly under Drs. Chandler and Grant.  Current (and future) members include ophthalmologists in subsequent generations of Chandler and Grant fellows which fosters our ability to carry on the principles started by these two great physicians.

Learn About Glaucoma

Glaucoma is an eye disease that has been called the "sneak thief of sight" because permanent damage to the eye can occur before patient even notices symptoms.  That is why early detection and management of this chronic disease is so important.
