Glaucoma is a blinding disease which disproportionately affects some communities, particularly African-Caribbeans. The ‘ReGAE’ project: Research into Glaucoma and Ethnicity was set up in 1999 and is based at the Birmingham and Midland Eye Centre. Among its aims are to provide ethnically-sensitive evidence-based information to help inform the future commissioning and training of glaucoma care with ethnic groups and to develop a national programme of glaucoma education.
