Schepens Eye Research Institute’s primary goal is to eliminate blindness. 

Reaching this goal requires financial resources to support laboratory and clinical research activities – now and for the future.  As a non-profit organization, Schepens relies on revenue streams from the federal government, foundations and corporations, endowment, and the generosity of private individuals.
