Giving Opportunities/Current Projects

Gifts to Scheie Eye Institute can be made in a variety of ways and can be directed to the program of your choice, or to support the research of a particular physician or scientist. Every gift leads us a step closer to our goal of finding a treatment or cure for blindness and vision loss. All gifts to Scheie Eye Institute are welcomed and appreciated.
