Eye on the Cure is the official blog of the Foundation Fighting Blindness, a private non-profit that raises funds for research targeting treatments and cures for vision-robbing retinal diseases. Authored by Dr. Stephen Rose, the Foundation’s chief research officer, and other contributors, the blog provides an insider view of the retinal research field, which, over the past decade, has exploded with scientific discoveries and advancements.
Steve, as he likes to be called, is a renowned expert on retinal research, which means Eye on the Cure provides readers with updates that no other blog can. Steve comments on the latest news, provides useful information in easy-to-understand language and connects readers with valuable resources, including those provided by the Foundation.
Founded in 1971, FFB has raised more than $500 million for research intended to eradicate retinal degenerations, such as retinitis pigmentosa and age-related macular degeneration, affecting more than 10 million Americans.
