There is much research aimed at determining the cause of pseudoexfoliation since it is the leading cause of open angle glaucoma, and one of the top reasons for complications associated with cataract surgery. Once the exact cause can be found, new treatments, cures and methods of prevention can be discovered. Dr. Robert Cykiert, in collaboration with some leading research scientists, is actively involved in pseudoexfoliation research.
If you or a family member has pseudoexfoliation, or if you'd like to contribute to important medical research to prevent blindness, please contact Dr. Cykiert for information on how you can help fund important pseudoexfoliation research.
