MARIETTA, GA April 20, 2021 – Marietta Eye Clinic, one of Georgia’s largest and most comprehensive eye care practices, is pleased to announce the practice’s support for the 2021 Atlanta Vision Walk fundraising event in Atlanta, Georgia. The event will raise funds for the Foundation Fighting Blindness, an organization promoting important research into the causes and cures of blinding retinal degenerative diseases. 

The Foundation Fighting Blindness was established in 1971 by a passionate group of families driven to find treatments and cures for inherited retinal diseases that were affecting their loved ones. Today, the Foundation Fighting Blindness is the world’s leading private funder of retinal disease research. That funding has been a driving force behind the progress toward cures, including the identification of more than 270 genes linked to retinal disease and the launch of 36 clinical trials for potential treatments. 

 Atlanta area ophthalmology practices, specialty practices, businesses, and individuals will join together to show their commitment to finding treatments and cures for blinding retinal disease on June 12, 2021, at the National Virtual VisionWalk. This year’s walk will be held virtually, and participants are encouraged to walk around their neighborhoods, local parks, and other areas to show their support. This year’s opening ceremonies for the 2021 Atlanta Vision Walk will be held online.  

“Sponsoring the Atlanta Vision Walk is a top priority every year for Marietta Eye Clinic,” states managing partner, Dr. Andre Cohen. “We are proud to work alongside this organization to bring awareness to our community’s eye health and support the fight against blinding diseases. As industry leading experts, Marietta Eye Clinic continues to exceed expectations through daily practice, patient education, and ongoing support for our local communities.”
