Found this article while I was browsing around!

https://www.news-medical.net/news/20200911/National-Eye-Institute-grant-supports-research-initiatives-in-major-vision-robbing-conditions.aspx

"A $3 million National Eye Institute grant is enabling the critical infrastructure necessary to grow research initiatives in major vision-robbing conditions at the Medical College of Georgia and Augusta University."


"Areas of focus in the institute include disorders affecting the retina, cornea and lens, including diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and the retinopathy that affects premature babies."

Sounds great!  8)
