The National Alliance for Eye Vision Research (NAEVR) works to insure that government officials understand the need for ongoing federal support of eye research. The National Eye Institute (NEI) is the federal government's source of funding for vision research. RPB and NAEVR have a mutual interest in supporting the NEI because RPB grants have been designed to work synergistically with NEI grants in several ways:
RPB was instrumental in initiating the movement that led to the creation of the NEI and continues to support NAEVR's activities.
If you want to express your support for federally-funded eye research, go to the website of the National Alliance for Eye Vision Research and enter your zip code in the "SPEAK UP" box in the upper right corner to find your representative and write him/her an e-mail.
Through NAEVR you can also follow the issues that influence appropriations for eye research.
