While 2013 has certainly been a productive and exciting year, we have even grander plans for 2014, our Centennial! 

Your KU Eye Team is pleased to share with you - our supporters, partners, patients and colleagues - a few highlights of our plans for the yearlong celebration of such a significant milestone:

  • Department Holiday Gala on January 19th to commemorate our founding on January 1, 1914. 
  • The Quarterly Century of Caring Lecture Series, which begins in February and is designed to include fellow physicians and the community at large. 
  • The Kansas City St. Patrick's Day Parade float for the third year, with a goal of 100 participants and taking 1st place (got 2nd last year!).
  • The GRAND OPENING of our new KU Eye Surgery & Laser Center, LLC, is scheduled for 6 p.m. April 24th (operational in February).  Located on the second floor of our current building, we will have live music and tours of our ambulatory surgery center (ASC). 
  • The fifth annual Kansas EyeCon CME conference on May 9th and 10th in Overland Park, Kansas, where the first distinguished Lemoine Alumni Lecturer will present.
  • Century of Caring Lecture Series, Septemeber.
  • InSight Out: Vision Awareness Picnic, to promote World Sight Day, October 11th.
  • Day of Service honoring Veterans, November.

Our goal is to offer something for everyone, while promoting the values and mission of KU Eye Center: outreach, education, collaboration and excellence in eye care.
