The University of Nebraska Medical Center is showing off its new $30 million eye institute.

The grand opening celebration for the Stanley M. Truhlsen Eye Institute is being held on Wednesday.

The institute houses research facilities, offers treatments for macular degeneration, glaucoma and other degenerative eye diseases, and provides eye exams.

Officials hope the institute will produce revolutionary research and become recognized as one of the top eye care centers. It is led by Doctors Quan Dong Nguyen and his wife, Diana Do.

The institute is named after a former faculty member in UNMC's ophthalmology department and former president of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Ophthalmological Society.
