For Sue Downes and the team of eye care professionals at My Eye Dr., supporting the Foundation’s VisionWalk program in Northern Virginia was a completely natural thing to do. The full-service eye care company prides itself in not only delivering high quality products and services, but also serving as many people in the Metropolitan Washington, D.C., community as possible. Raising money for the Foundation Fighting Blindness was a great way to support people with retinal degenerative diseases who are counting on innovative research to save their vision.
