This website is free. I have chosen to neither seek nor accept corporate sponsorship. The Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine has supported my efforts and the efforts of Mr. Verdick and Ms. Bryant. For this support I am grateful to our chairman, Keith D. Carter, MD.
The Frederick C. Blodi Chair has supported my time and some of the equipment used in developing this site. I am grateful to the 127 individuals who were kind enough to endow this chair in honor of a man who was a hero to all who knew him. Mrs. Ruth Altermatt has kindly contributed funds to upgrade our video equipment over the years in memory of her husband, Clifford Altermatt. The Allergan Corporation, through an unrestricted grant, helped us purchase our video processing computer in 2004.
