Previous Section || Table of Contents || Next Section

Acknowledgments

The National Eye Institute and the National Advisory Eye Council wish to thank those who contributed suggestions, comments, and recommendations during the development of this Strategic Plan. In particular, we wish to acknowledge the contributions of the members of the program planning panels, including the NEI staff, who so freely gave of their time and expertise and the various organizations that provided advice and assistance in reviewing various drafts of the Plan. The vision research community is indebted to these people for their generous efforts on behalf of those who suffer from visual impairment or blindness due to eye diseases.
