Augusta University and Windsor Fine Jewelers partner to cure eye disease

Join Augusta University’s James and Jean Culver Vision Discovery Institute and Windsor Fine Jewelers for the “Color – Cut – Clarity” event to prevent blindness.

‘Tis the season for gift giving to friends and loved ones, but it is also a great time to give to a worthy cause.

This holiday season, join Augusta University’s James and Jean Culver Vision Discovery Institute and Windsor Fine Jewelers for the “Color – Cut – Clarity” event to prevent blindness.  Beginning Nov. 9 until Dec. 25, university and medical center employees, board members, and their relatives who patronize Windsor Fine Jewelers will have a percentage of the sale donated to benefit the institute’s research programs. Just be sure to alert the sales associate of your affiliation with the institution.

This is the first year the university has partnered with Windsor Fine Jewelers, and the institute’s co-director, Dr. Julian Nussbaum, says he is grateful their initiatives have the support of one of the nation’s leaders in fine jewelry.

“Partnering with Windsor Fine Jewelers for this event will provide needed dollars for high impact research aimed at finding new treatment and cures for some of the country’s most serious blinding diseases,” said Nussbaum, who also chairs the Department of Ophthalmology in the Medical College of Georgia. “Our patients put their trust in our hands, and this fundraising event will help us deliver on our commitment to provide the most innovative and highest quality vision care.”

Since 2008, the Culver Vision Discovery Institute has pioneered treatments to address five of the leading causes of blindness in the United States, including macular degeneration, glaucoma, corneal disruption, cataract and retinopathy of prematurity.
