Las Vegas Billionare Donates $25M to U of I Vision Research



Las Vegas casino tycoon Steve Wynn says he gave $25 million to the University of Iowa after becoming convinced that its researchers were leading the world in the search for a blindness cure. Wynn said that researchers ``are knocking on the door'' of a discovery that was once unthinkable.
He spoke after the university of Iowa celebrated the naming of the Stephen A. Wynn Institute for Vision Research during a ceremony Friday afternoon.
