The generosity and service of David and Ilene Flaum, in whose honor the program has been renamed, has enhanced the institute’s mission to develop and apply advanced technologies for the preservation, enhancement and restoration of vision through a partnership of academic medicine, private industry, and the community.

The facility was dedicated at 210 Crittenden Boulevard as the Adeline P. Lutz Pavilion in honor of the generous gift from Walter and Adeline Lutz. These two philanthropic milestones mark the completion of the highly successful first phase of our growth and signal the beginning of the second phase designed to reach our long term goal of a top 10 national ranking in NIH funding and in public recognition.
