Why the ASCRS Foundation Needs Your Help:
In Ethiopia 4 million suffer from cataract blindness or low vision and in China 6.7 million are on a waiting list for cataract surgery. The ASCRS Foundation is working in both countries, providing care and training surgeons.
Here at home, foundation research grants have funded over 90 studies and our Eye Surgery Education Council website provides patients with an honest, non-branded information portal for learning about the benefits and risks of cataract and refractive surgery.
Your help keeps these important humanitarian, research, and public awareness programs moving forward. Contact us for more information:
