Supporting a Brighter Future


There is much yet to be accomplished in the field of ophthalmology, and you can help!

Our department has a long history of providing the best care for our patients, conducting essential research, and educating today's and tomorrow's ophthalmologists and visual science researchers. The tradition of excellence continues.

Your financial support helps fund research and patient care innovations and also provides unrestricted resources that can be used when and where the need is the greatest.

You may make a gift online and charge it to your credit card or make a pledge online.

We appreciate your support. Every gift makes a difference.
