Place your bets at the Racing for Sight event Sunday, April 25 at Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie.

Scientists focus on age-related macular degeneration, the role of nutrition in vision, pediatric eye disorders and genetic eye research. All services are provided free of charge and must be referred by an ophthalmologist. Racing for Sight 2010 is dedicated to the memory of Thomas L. Anderson who was the Retina Foundation of the Southwest President from 1980 – 1992.
