Glick Family Philanthropy to Advance Ophthalmology
Through the generosity of the Glick family, the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Eye Institute opened its doors in 2009 and is now home to the IU School of Medicine Department of Ophthalmology. The four-story, 77,000-square-foot building provides 14,000 square feet of clinic space and is the capstone of the philanthropy of Eugene and Marilyn Glick, Indianapolis residents who donated $30 million to support vision research, eye care and education at the largest medical school in the country.
