THE FASTER TREATMENTS AND CURES FOR EYE DISEASES ACT
4 Million Adults
In the United States and almost half-a-million children are blind or have severely impaired vision.
The Faster Treatments and Cures for Eye Diseases Act is a federal bill that would create a pilot program to facilitate funding by private investors for translational research and advance treatments and cures for blindness and severe vision impairment.
Eye Bonds, a key part of the bipartisan legislation, would finance packages of loans to projects at small labs, universities, and other centers that right now can’t secure needed funding.
