Each year, EyesOn Design attracts members of the transportation design community, collectors, and the public to celebrate and reflect on design. Vehicles are chosen based on the year’s theme by invitation only, and between 200 and 300 vehicles are at the show on Father’s Day.

Raising Money to Support Vision

Design benefits vision and vision benefits design.

In the year 2000, the Detroit Institute of Ophthalmology had the inspiration to foster a new collaboration among visual prosthesis researchers, clinicians, and workers in low vision rehabilitation by creating and sponsoring a series of biennial meetings called ‘The Eye and the Chip’. Successful beyond expectations, these meetings have become the premier gathering place for researchers from all parts of the world.
— Gislin Dagnelie, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine

The Detroit Institute of Ophthalmology brings together competing researchers to share their findings, critique each other’s work, and go home with new approaches. 

The Eye and The Chip, organized with Harvard Medical School, encourages collaboration between efforts to provide artificial vision to many people who are now blind.

The Eye, The Brain, and The Auto improves our understanding of the relationship between vision and the safe operation of vehicles, in an attempt to reduce fatalities.
