Abstract

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.
