At the Fort Lauderdale Eye Institute and Fort Lauderdale Retina Institute we take pride in our involvement with the surrounding communities. Drs. Ronald Glatzer and Tirso Lara recently spoke to the community regarding the latest treatments for macular degeneration. This talk was sponsored by the Macula Vision Research Foundation, a national organization with a mission to find the cause, prevention, treatment, and cure for macula vision diseases. We are also sponsors of many fundraising walks including the upcoming Lighthouse of Broward “Eye Opener” 5K run/walk on January 10, 2010.
