With Veterans Day on the horizon, it is important to remember the 1 million veterans have suffered visual impairment; 130,000 service men and women are living in blindness. Lawmakers hope to one day restore vision for Veterans through the Faster Treatments and Cures for Eye Diseases Act (H.R. 6421). The bipartisan bill would give birth to Eye Bonds that finance research for the entire eye. Eye bonds could help new research get from the first stage to federal regulatory approval.
