Friends of the Institute

Schepens Eye Research Institute is fortunate to have a number of special friends committed to our mission.

For instance:

  • A trucker in Indiana who lost his vision has formed a special program called “Eyes on the Road” with the nation’s largest trucking website to increase awareness and increase funding for Institute research. 

  • A young girl has created and sells wristbands to increase funding for research on Stargardt’s disease, which afflicts her two cousins. 

  • A visionary philanthropist has built a committed group of volunteers in Florida promoting the importance of supporting vision research.

These are a few individuals who have made a contribution to Schepens Eye Research Institute. Tell us your story and we can work with you to find the right way to channel your gift of energy and time.
