Falls are a major risk for people with impaired vision caused by glaucoma. Many avoid leaving home for fear of falling. The FIG Study finds behaviors that reduce the risk of falling and return access to the world for those with advanced glaucoma. When I make a contribution to FIGS and volunteer to participate in the study, I feel the dual satisfactions of knowing that I am making my life better and safer and also safeguarding the safety and freedom of fellow glaucoma sufferers.”

– Ron Levin, FIGS Participant and Supporter   

Advances in healthcare – new insights, therapies, and cures – happen thanks to investments from individuals, like Ron, who believe in the promise of science. These leaps forward begin with steps that philanthropy initiates. With your support and that of others, Dr. Ramulu hopes to gain valuable data for developing interventions to prevent falls and ultimately improve the quality of life for glaucoma patients.
