Chairman Andrew Eiseman, M.D.

The dedication of the entire Storm Eye family has been nothing short of amazing and has allowed us to not only maintain but also expand our success and continue achieving our tripartite mission.  With our safety measures in place, we continue to take great care of our patients, we continue to offer state-of-the-art educational opportunities to students, residents, fellows, faculty, and staff, and we continue to advance our world-class research endeavors.  

The first quarter of the year also provided the opportunity for several firsts. We hosted our first virtual Storm Eye Advisory Board meeting, providing me with an opportunity to personally thank the members of our board for their commitment and support. Storm Eye is incredibly fortunate to have an advisory board that is not only hard working but also incredibly generous with their time and philanthropy. Time after time, the board has taken the lead to invest in the success of Storm Eye. I cannot thank them enough, and I am humbled by their generosity!

Finally, Storm Eye participated in the first ever virtual Lions Club meeting. Lions Clubs throughout the state of South Carolina have been huge supporters of Storm Eye for decades and it was my honor to spend part of the afternoon with the Spartanburg Lions. The Spartanburg Lions Club was instrumental in creating and supporting the Lions Den in the Pediatric Ophthalmology Clinic. The Lions Den has been a huge success allowing children to relax and enjoy their time in the clinic.  It was my pleasure to thank the Spartanburg Lions for their incredible support and to discuss the current and future directions of Storm Eye.

As we begin the second quarter of the year, please stay safe and thanks for all your past, present, and future contributions to the success of Storm Eye!!
