Thank You for Leading the Way

Steps for Sight is a new challenge at the 2018 ASCRS-ASOA Annual Meeting. The goal is to encourage attendees to improve their health, have a bit of competitive fun, and raise money for a good cause – ending preventable cataract blindness.

Participants have already begun signing-up and creating their challenge pages.
