Humanitarian Eye Care

The ASCRS Foundation delivers humanitarian eye care – domestically and internationally – to those who need it most.   

Physician Education

ASCRS was founded by young, enterprising ophthalmologists, and the ASCRS Foundation’s Resident Excellence Awards are a way to carry on and honor that tradition. 


We have aligned with a network of partner organizations focused on improving physician capacity, quality, and productivity. 


ASCRS members have unique skills that can restore sight. Volunteer through the Foundation to give your skills to those most in need.

  • I have seen patients elated to the point of crying. The ASCRS Foundation provides needed care to those who would otherwise go throughout life blind.
