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.

Announcing Inaugural Chang Humanitarian Award

Do you know an individual ophthalmologist who is doing exceptional humanitarian work in the domain of cataract blindness and disability? Do they and their charitable organization merit special recognition and support?

It's time to celebrate the noble volunteer efforts of your colleagues within ophthalmology who are trying to alleviate needless global blindness.
