I was first referred to Dr. Anthony Nesburn, Medical Director for the DEF, as a result of his expertise, both clinically and in the field of ophthalmic research specific to my medical needs. Continuing as his patient for over forty years, I have been the beneficiary of both his wisdom and compassion. Throughout this time, I've witnessed the unwavering devotion he has demonstrated not only to his own research, but in his support of the research of others through the Foundation.
On a separate note, my family and friends have suffered from the impacts of both AMD and Keratoconus.
The community outreach the Foundation affords those suffering with these serious eye conditions
is so very important.
It has been my privilege to offer financial support for the last several years to an organization accomplishing much in different arenas.

I was a patient of Dr. Anthony Nesburn, when I presented with a challenging corneal problem. His compassion, expertise, conservative approach and overall care were exemplary. I since learned about the foundation he supports, and have been a donor - and passionate fan - ever since, in support of the foundation's good works, Dr. Nesburn's selfless service, and their goals.

In my professional life, I am CEO of a non profit organization - and I've served in similar capacities for over 30 years. The Discovery Eye Foundation is an incredible organization, from all perspectives.

I have Keratoconus and we need advocates working for us to find a cure to this condition. The monthly newsletter is helpful. In particular information about the research.

The Macular Degeneration Partnership continually gives good information and help. I have been battling wet AMD in my right eye for 8 years and it is now beginning in the left one. I live in France and have the good fortune to have a specialist here who keeps it under control. Because this is inherited in my case, my 2 sisters are also readers of the MD Partnership site, and it gives all of us good guidance. We are very grateful!

I have had keratoconos for nearly 50 years and this organization has been a godsend for information, counsel and direction as my deseace has progressed. After a corneal transplant I found their literature to be the most complete and easiest to access and use that existed. Their research into a range of eye issues seems to be at the forefront of progress for these conditions and there ratio of operating expenses to proper use of their funds seems to be very high.
