Company Profile

In 1956 the Sovereign Grand Lodge established their first humanitarian effort, the World Eye Bank & Visual Research Foundation. When funds contributed from all over the world reached $625,000, a chair of Ophthalmology was established in the Wilmer Eye Institute Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore with Dr. Arthur Silverstein as the first professor. Only the interest has been drawn from this account, with the University making up any needed funds for expenses. Since that time contributions have made possible the realization of the “Million Dollar Dream" in 1983.In 1989 Dr. Silverstein retired and was replaced by Dr. William Richard Green.
