The Foundation Fighting Blindness will host a free vision health seminar on Saturday, February 11, 8:00 AM – 12:00 noon at the Stonegate Conference and Banquet Centre in Hoffman Estates. Lead speaker Zac B. Ravage, MD of Illinois Retina Associates, will discuss the latest research and available treatments for vision loss caused by macular degeneration.
Sometimes, fighting blindness means helping people save the vision they have, or at least slowing disease progression enough so they can maintain useful vision for all of their lives.
