Private gifts

Private gifts which have always been vital to the progress of healthcare- are more critical than ever to maintaining excellence and supporting singular accomplishments in research at Emory Eye Center. Such funds help break new ground in educating future ophthalmology care givers, in eye research that pushes the boundaries of knowledge, and in enabling tools and resources for providing cutting-edge care to our patients. Endowed gifts help sustain Emory Eye Center’s prominence as one of the nation’s leading academic eye institutes. To learn more about endowed giving, please contact Kate Myers, director of development for the Emory Eye Center at 404-778-4121.


Every time Emory Eye Center doctors and medical trainees meet with patients, hear about their symptoms, and watch the progress of their condition, they gain knowledge that affects not only their research, but the future of ophthalmic medicine.

Participants in clinical trials

The volunteering spirit of patients who generously participate in clinical trials can help make good vision a possibility for many people who desperately need it.

Referral sources

Thanks to those who have recommended the Emory Eye Center to a friend or relative with eye-related problems, encouraged someone to sign up for a clinical trial, mentioned an Emory doctor whose care helped them, or know someone who would like to support vision research.
