Emory Eye Center

You know the Emory Eye Center.
Our ophthalmologists are champions of quality patient care. Our faculty are training the next generation of vision professionals. And our researchers are providing critical insight into treatment for eye diseases and injuries. We rank among the nation’s best in vision care and ophthalmological education.

Gifts to the Emory Eye Center allow us to continue the 150 years of excellence. 

With your support, the Emory Eye Center can strengthen our commitment to excellence in patient care. We can deepen our research into emerging more challenges. We can impact eye care and education around the globe.

How can you help?
For Emory Day of Giving, we ask you to join us by donating to either the Emory Eye Center Residents Program fund or the Emory Eye Center Research fund. Your gift will make a difference in training clinical and surgical ophthalmologists and cutting-edge eye disease research.

Success!
