Saving Sight. Improving Lives. See it Forward

Philanthropy and Charitable Support

The Kentucky Lions Eye Center and the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences comprise one of the most renowned research and clinical institutes in the United States in the field of blinding diseases. Yet for all the important work we do, we are dependent on your financial support to sustain our progress in curing serious eye diseases. 

On behalf of those we serve, those we teach, and the millions more we hope to reach through the advancements in care and treatment our research will yield…we thank you for your continued support. 

Through your donations and support of our institution, you are helping people throughout the world to clearly see the results of your generosity.
