Doheny Closes out 75th Anniversary with Eyes on the Future

Last month marked the end of our 75th year, closing out a remarkable time for Doheny Eye Institute – from our founding by Carrie Estelle Doheny in 1947 after she lost the sight in her left eye to becoming one of the world’s foremost leaders in vision research.

We are now settled into our new Pasadena campus, which opened nearly two years ago, and broke ground earlier this month on our new Doheny Eye Center UCLA Pasadena Clinic which will be housed on the first floor of our campus in a spacious, state-of-the-art space.

Coming up in December we celebrate 10 years of affiliation with UCLA Stein Eye Institute, a remarkable partnership that furthers our goal to conserve, preserve and restore vision in all people.

It is through the generosity of our supporters that the researchers and clinician-scientists at Doheny are able to secure the equipment they need and critical funding to continue leading their field and supporting our efforts to preserve human eyesight. Our storied history and bright future are made possible by our donors, and we send our deepest gratitude to everyone who has supported us over the decades.
