Thanks to National Sight Week Volunteers

The ASCRS Foundation's 2nd Annual National Sight Week is coming to a close this weekend. We don't have official numbers - yet - but hundreds of U.S. patients in need are seeing clearer thanks to our volunteer surgeons and donors. We look forward to providing you a full and complete update on National Sight Week, but wanted to take a moment to send our gratitude to the specific practices who have volunteer surgeons participating in this important celebration:

 

Volunteers Needed for National Sight Week

Next month, the ASCRS Foundation will host its 2nd annual National Sight Week initiative, October 15-21. The goal of National Sight Week is to raise awareness about needless cataract blindness in the United States by performing as many chariatble cataract surgeries as possible during the one-week period. National Sight Week is a part of our domestic charitable eye care program, Operation Sight.

Cataracts are not just a medical issue in developing countries. Here in the United States there are neighbors in our communities who are uninsured – or underinsured - and cannot afford care on their own. These individuals may rely on others to complete their daily tasks, and if left untreated, risk complete vision loss.
