Giving a Gift

The gift of sight is nearly as precious as the gift of life itself. Our relationships, activities at work and play, memories, even our life view are all linked through this unique gift of sight. For millions of adults and children, however, impaired vision causes them to know a world of blurred, distorted or even blank images.

Such was the feeling of Mrs. Albert F. Storm when she made a bequest in 1961 to help establish an eye institute. Named for her husband, Albert Florens Storm, the Storm Eye Institute opened in 1976. This philanthropic heritage continues today as expressed in our compassionate care, scientific discovery, and superior medical training.

At the Storm Eye Institute, vision is our mission to make lives better. Advances made at the Storm Eye Institute have improved sight for people worldwide. The Storm Eye Institute is committed to investing in talented physicians and researchers and providing them with the tools of discovery.

Charitable giving has been significant to these discoveries. Exceptional philanthropy begins with the ability to envision a better world and the belief that as partners we can achieve it.



The Storm Eye Institute’s future is built on an impressive heritage. This began in 1961 when a generous gift by Mrs. Albert Florens Storm helped establish an institute for the treatment of and research in eye disorders.
