Operation Sight

Announcing National Sight Week October 20th-26th

Operation Sight is the ASCRS Foundation's U.S.-based charitable cataract surgery program. Our nationwide network of volunteer surgeons and staff members have provided over 3,350 free surgeries to those unable to access or afford cataract surgery on their own.

Volunteer Spotlight: Michael Donahoe, MD

“Most of us in the healthcare field chose this career path to be able to make a difference in the lives of others,” explains Dr. Michael Donahoe of the Ophthalmology Consultants in St. Louis, Missouri. A passionate advocate for charitable eye care, Dr. Donahoe started his journey as a sight-giver with his first surgery day in the spring of 2012.
