The Pediatric Retinal Research Foundation was founded in Novi in 1990 by a group of physicians and volunteers dedicated to eliminating the problem of childhood blindness and other pediatric low vision conditions. Through funding research at Oakland University’s Eye Research Institute, the Mayo Clinic, and Johns Hopkins University, the foundation helped oversee a project that identified a genetic link between premature birth and retinal detachment of retinopathy of prematurity. In 2020, it hosted its second annual Hope for Vision Walk (virtual due to COVID-19). Walk participants, represented from 18 states and two countries, raised nearly $30,000 to advance research and programs at the foundation.
