A donor's vision for a world-class center

The Karalis Johnson Retina Center opened at UW Medicine’s South Lake Union campus in 5,000-plus square feet of space.

Angie Karalis Johnson is the widow of Dr. Roger H. Johnson, a clinical professor of ophthalmology at the University of Washington School of Medicine, and a well-known ophthalmologist who ran a practice that was the primary referral center for Seattle Children’s and eye diseases in the Pacific Northwest.

In this video, she tours the new center with Dr. Russ Van Gelder, director of the UW Medicine Eye Institute. In her words, "I have felt joy ever since I made this gift."
