185th Anniversary Gala

On behalf of everyone at Wills Eye Hospital we thank you so much for your support and for joining with us in celebrating 185 years of improving sight.

Since 1832, Wills-trained physicians have powered the engines that drive translational advances in ophthalmology. From pioneering inventions, to innovative surgical techniques, to new paradigms for patient care, medical education and research, modern ophthalmology owes an enormous debt to the inquiring minds and investigative creativity of our Wills alumni.

The Wills Eye Ball 2017 looked back with pride at the staggering contributions of our unparalleled alumni body, and onward with excitement to further partnership fostering the investigations and innovations that will push Wills-envisioned breakthroughs of the future, bringing hope and sight to those who entrust us with their vision.
