Registry Criterion

The Australian and New Zealand Registry of Advanced Glaucoma needs assistance from ophthalmologists, other eye health professionals and low vision services in Australia and New Zealand to recruit suitable candidates based on clinical evaluation.

Suitability for inclusion into the registry is currently based on the following criterion:

Note: Congenital, Juvenile, Exfoliative, Primary Angle Closure, Pigmentary, Anterior Segment Development and Steroid Induced glaucoma ARE NOT exclusion criteria.

We wish to recruit in all of the above categories INDEPENDENT of glaucoma status.

All participants will be asked to provide a DNA sample (blood preferable) to assist in the search for new genes related to glaucoma. This will be coordinated by staff at the Australian and New Zealand Registry of Advanced Glaucoma.
