About the Moran Eye Center's Outreach Program

The Moran Eye Center trains doctors, nurses, and other eye care professionals in more than 25 countries. We bring the most promising international surgeons to Utah for intensive training and send our own American residents abroad. At medical camps in the field, Moran surgeons restore sight to hundreds of patients in a week while teaching local trainees. In Utah, we provide charitable care to thousands of individuals without adequate access to care across the state and on the Navajo Nation.

This year's online event and auction will honor the life and legacy of Alan S. Crandall, MD.



The Alan S. Crandall, MD, Endowment in Global Outreach for Patient Care, Teaching, and Training.


The endowment provides a lasting impact and ensures Dr. Crandall's legacy of charitable eyecare will continue. Through private investment and smart fiscal management, your gift is guaranteed to be kept in perpetuity. A portion of the funds from the endowment will go directly to Moran's Global Outreach Division to provide excellent patient care and teach and train ophthalmologists in Utah and around the world. The remaining portion of the endowment funds is added to the principle, which grows over time, ensuring that we can continue Dr. Crandall's work for decades to come.
