Date:1/15/2008

The Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences at University Hospitals Case Medical Center and Case Western Reserve University has been awarded $110,000 in unrestricted funds by Research to Prevent Blindness, the worlds leading voluntary organization supporting eye research.

Under the direction of Jonathan H. Lass, M.D., the department has received grants totaling in excess of $1.6 million over the past 11 years.

We are thrilled Research to Prevent Blindness continues to recognize and support our on-going research activities and the ever-changing world of vision science, said Dr. Lass. The funds will allow us to continue to identify the causes, treatment and prevention of blinding diseases such as corneal cataracts, macular degeneration, ocular inflammation and scarring, diabetic retinopathy and genetic eye diseases, he added.
