Prof David Mackey AO receives Glaucoma Australia’s 2023 ‘Quinlivan’ Research Grant

“We lack data on the normal range of IOP in children and have presumed it is the same as for adults. Funding from the Quinlivan Research Grant will enable us to collect and analyse data from young participants in the Raine Study, whose parents have been followed by researchers for their entire lives. This will enable never-before possible research into the genetic, lifestyle and intergenerational aspects of IOP, as well as the creation of an IOP reference range for children.”

Congratulations to RANZCO Fellow and councillor Prof David Mackey AO, who has been awarded the Glaucoma Australia’s ‘Quinlivan’ Research Grant for 2023. Prof Mackey seeks to investigate the normal range of intraocular pressure (IOP) in children and young adults and if it can predict later glaucoma.

Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness worldwide. The main risk factors for glaucoma are family history, genetics and elevated eye pressure.
