The Stein Eye Institute originated with a concept for a comprehensive center for vision science at UCLA, magnanimous philanthropy by Dr. Jules and Mrs. Doris Stein, and endorsement by the University Regents. Conceived in 1961, a dedicated physical facility for the Institute became a reality in 1966. Progressive programs of eye research, education and patient care have placed the Institute among the world’s great centers for vision science.

Plans for an additional facility and imminent breakthroughs in clinical and laboratory research, enabling new treatments for patients during the 21st century, promise to elevate the Institute to the next and higher level of achievement in eradicating blindness and preserving vision.
