Glaucoma team(s) run Marathon for Compassionate Care Fund”
Every year the dedicated physicians and other caregivers at Mass. Eye and Ear treat the most serious of ‘sight’ issues.
Glaucoma is a serious disease that leads to optic nerve damage—and without treatment and medication, leads to complete blindness.
Due to illness, age and/or economic conditions, many of the Glaucoma patients in our clinics cannot afford their required daily medication.We are running the 2012 Boston Marathon to help.
Mass. Eye and Ear physicians and staff are committed to providing access to these less fortunate patients who cannot afford these sight-saving medicines and have pledged to raise funds for the Compassionate Care Fund.
Please GIVE: “THE GIFT OF SIGHT”
The Glaucoma Compassionate Care Fund will be fully expendable to support patients in need of assistance associated with the purchase of medications for the treatment of all forms of glaucoma.

At Mass. Eye and Ear, our focus is your quality of life. We treat everything that has to do with the eyes, ears, nose, throat, head and neck - so that you and those you care about can get more out of the world around us.
Our physicians are more than just specialists; each is also a researcher and a teacher. These doctors don't just apply the latest advances in medicine; they invent them. Together with Mass. Eye and Ear scientists, they work tirelessly to understand the root causes of diseases that both take people's lives and rob too many others of their quality of life.
Every dollar raised makes it possible for Mass. Eye and Ear to excel in clinical care, research and medical education. That, in turn, allows us to provide the finest specialty care to every person who comes through our door and to share our knowledge in order to help patients around the world.
Thank you for your support.
