AGS Cares

About the Program

AGS Cares is a public service program supported by the AGS Foundation that is dedicated to providing surgical glaucoma care at no cost to uninsured or under served patients who qualify for such care. The glaucoma care is provided by members of a national network of volunteers comprising glaucoma surgeons who are AGS active or provisional members. 

AGS Cares is designed to address a major unmet need for glaucoma care among U.S. patients with limited financial resources. The program connects such patients with volunteer surgeons who can provide the surgical and postoperative clinical care necessary to prevent disease progression and blindness. This is an opportunity for the AGS and glaucoma experts to give back to the community through a meaningful program that will be sustained with ongoing support by corporate sponsors and other donors to help cover some of the surgical-related costs.

The AGS Cares patient and physician enrollment and eligibility form is now available and accepting applicants. 

For more information and general inquiries, please contact AGS at 415.561.8587 or email AGS@aao.org.
