Glaukos Charitable Foundation

Consistent with our corporate mission to deliver transformative therapies for glaucoma, corneal, and retinal diseases worldwide, we created the Glaukos Charitable Foundation as a philanthropic organization dedicated to helping people in need, in our own community and beyond.

The Foundation provides the less fortunate with access to meaningful, safe, and long-term ophthalmic care through various philanthropic efforts and donations. Through partnerships with over 102 humanitarian organizations, Glaukos has contributed more than 5,500 devices to underserved glaucoma patients in 45 different countries.

Beyond efforts to improve the lives of people with ocular defects, our charitable outreach also coordinates donations of toys and clothes, sponsors volunteer events, and promotes individual community engagement. To encourage individual involvement, Glaukos employees are rewarded with personal time off for their volunteerism in pursuit of this important goal.

We’re proud of the corporate citizenship efforts of our Foundation, Company and employees, and pledge to continue this important work in helping improve the lives of those suffering 
and in need.
