Our group was formed in 1988 as the Glaucoma Club, founded by Dr William (Bill) Gillies. The Club became The Australian and New Zealand Glaucoma Interest Group (ANZGIG) in 2006. At our 2017 Annual General Meeting held on 4 February in Brisbane, it was decided for ANZGIG to become a Society: The Australian and New Zealand Glaucoma Society (ANZGS).
