Not Providing Charitable Surgeries? You Can Still Participate!

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.
