The Duke Eye Center

The following article is by Lauren Tappan:

The Duke Chronicle Newspaper had a brief article this week on construction of the new Duke Eye Center. The Eye Center is planning on having state of the art optical imaging technology. They have rearranged the parking, which is supposed to be more handicapped accessible, and my understanding is they hired a blind architect to help design the new building. They hope to complete the construction in 2013. LC Industries, which is the largest employer of the visually impaired, has contributed money ($16 million) to support this new project.

Note: Some estimates place completion of construction in 2015.
