Alan Crandall Wins Chang Humanitarian Award

Endowed by a generous gift from David and Victoria Chang, the ASCRS Foundation Chang Humanitarian Award has been established to honor and recognize outstanding humanitarian work with a focus on cataract blindness and disability. Alan Crandall, MD, embodies this purpose with his extensive humanitarian work both in the U.S. and abroad. The award will be given to Dr. Crandall at the 2018 ASCRS•ASOA Annual Meeting in Washington, DC.

300 Sight Giving Surgeries

Our 2nd Annual National Sight Week saw the volume of surgeries grow by 50% and 300 patients are seeing better just in time for the holidays! This is all thanks to our volunteer surgeons and donors who make this program possible.

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.
