Restoring Far More Than Eyesight

National Sight Week is a celebration of volunteerism, during which members of the ASCRS Foundation’s Operation Sight network are encouraged to contribute one or more charitable surgeries in their own communities. During this week would like to thank and acknowledge the entire Operation Sight volunteer network for helping us give the gift of sight to those Americans most in need.

The ASCRS Foundation is four days out from its 4th Annual National Sight Week initiative, October 20 ¬ 26, where the goal is to complete as many charitable surgeries as possible. Hundreds of surgeries will be performed by generous volunteers across the United States bringing a larger awareness to the work being done by Operation Sight volunteers.
