There are more than 4 million adults and nearly half-a-million children who are blind or have severely impaired vision in the United States. The Faster Treatments and Cures for Eye Diseases Act is a critical piece of legislation for everyone living with blindness and visual impairment. The bipartisan bill, if passed, will fund translational research, advanced treatments, and cures for blinding eye diseases.
“Today we are both proud to introduce a bill that we believe has enormous promise for Americans who are blind and, in the future, for those who suffer from other diseases,” writes Reps. Pete Sessions (R-TEXAS) and Sanford Bishop (D-GA.).
