Doheny Announces the Carolyn and Chuck Miller Chair in Vision Research

Doheny Eye Institute is honored to share that, through Carolyn Miller’s generosity, the Carolyn and Chuck Miller Endowed Chair for Vision Research has been established. Chuck Miller served as the Chairman and CEO of Avery Dennison for over two decades, where his vision of a corporate campus helped guide the original design of the Pasadena-based complex that Doheny now calls home. Later in life, he was diagnosed with age-related macular degeneration — the leading cause of blindness in the elderly population.

Read more here about the tremendous legacy of the Millers and how their generous gift will further support Doheny’s mission.
