Groningen Glaucoma Group (G3) Homepage



The final aim of our research is to improve glaucoma care by contributing to the development of evidence-based, protocolised, and tailor-made testing strategies for the detection and monitoring of glaucoma: what test should be performed when in which person and what should be done with the test result. Projects comprise clinical studies, epidemiology, psychophysics, and optical coherence tomography. Physiological optics and retinal physiology play a central role. Many projects use data collected in the 'Groningen Longitudinal Glaucoma Study', a longitudinal observational study with almost 1000 participants, begun in 2000.
