2023 Virtual Vision Research Symposium
CEBF held its third annual Virtual Vision Research Symposium on February 28th, 2023. We featured ten ophthalmology professionals from Northeast Ohio’s finest institutions to present their current research on blinding diseases. They presented on children’s vision issues, age-related macular degeneration, and glaucoma. Each section featured two informative presentations, followed by a moderator-lead panel discussion. 

People from all over the world tuned in to hear about the cutting-edge research happening here in Cleveland – we are already looking forward to next year’s symposium!

Supporter Reception Event
In fall 2022, CEBF hosted its community of supporters for an evening of hors d’oeuvres, Foundation updates, and an honoring of a former CEBF leader, Sue Janssen.

It was a wonderful night celebrating the accomplishments of local vision research, together.

Virtual Vision Research Symposium
October 2020 brought CEBF’s first signature Vision Research Symposium.

This free event brought together top physicians and researchers at Cleveland Clinic Cole Eye Institute, University Hospitals Eye Institute, & Akron Children’s Hospital. Researchers presented their latest ophthalmic work, funded by CEBF and now published in Ophthalmology Times.

Check Presentations at Cleveland Clinic & University Hospitals
In February of 2020, CEBF presented checks for the first of three installments of the $300,000 grants being gifted over three years. These grants will allow CCF and UH to carry out research to advance eye disease treatments and cures right here in Cleveland.
