The National Eye Institute celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2018!  This is an exciting milestone for us as we look back at the progress made in diagnosing and treating eye diseases and vision impairment since NEI was established in 1968.

We are also looking forward. Our mission continues to be to protect and prolong vision, and we are supporting cutting-edge research, translational science and clinical trials to advance sight-saving treatments, reduce visual impairment and blindness, and improve the quality of life for people of all ages. We are also advancing our knowledge of how the visual system—from the eyes to the brain—works in health and disease.
