Key Points

Washington, DC-The U.S. Senate has passed S. Res. 209, which recognizes the 40th anniversary of the National Eye Institute (NEI) within the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and supports designation of 2011-2020 as the Decade of Vision (DOV). The Senate's action follows the U.S. House of Representatives' unanimous passage on June 16 of H. Res. 366, which also acknowledged the NEI's 40th anniversary and supported the DOV.

After Senate passage, National Alliance for Eye and Vision Research Executive Director James Jorkasky issued this statement:

"Through S. Res. 209 and H. Res. 366, Congress has re-affirmed NEI's leadership of our nation's federal research efforts to prevent blindness and save and restore vision, benefiting the health, and vision health, of all Americans."
