A media report of Eyeball 2009

EyeBall is the annual gala of the 501c(3) non-profit charity Wang Foundation for Sight Restoration (www.wangfoundation.com). The foundation doctors published 5 textbooks and a paper in the world renowned journal “Nature”, hold several US patents for inventions of new biotechnology to restore sight, and performed the world’s first laser-assisted artificial cornea implantation. To date, the foundation has helped patients from over 40 states in the US and 55 countries with all sight restoration surgeries performed free of charge. EyeBall is rapidly becoming one of the largest medical charity ball of its kind in the US today. EyeBall 2009 was held on Saturday 10/3/09, at Opryland Hotel, Nashville, TN, USA. It drew an attendance of nearly 600 black-tied and ball-gowned guests, including former governor of Tennessee Winfield Dunn and current Lt Governor Ron Ramsey, and a spectacular performance by world mambo champions. All proceeds go to support the blind patients with all foundation doctors donating their services.
