The ASCRS Foundation is looking for a volunteer to develop short videos to help us spread the word and tell the story about the work that our donors and volunteers make possible in the United States and around the world.

More than 85 million people are visually impaired worldwide. Globally, cataracts are the second leading cause of visual impairment and the leading cause of preventable blindness in the developing world.

The ASCRS Foundation supports physician education and provides humanitarian cataract surgery in the United States and overseas. Through its programs and partnerships, the Foundation works to maximize the benefits of modern ophthalmology and to treat thousands of patients in need each year.

We have seen an increase in the number of patients who qualify for our Operation Sight program as the unemployment rate rises due to COVID-19. Operation Sight provides charitable surgery free of charge to those in need. For many, the gift of sight is the key to finding employment and supporting their families.

Get involved and give the gift of sight today!

Mission Statement

The ASCRS Foundation supports physician education and provides humanitarian cataract surgery in the United States and overseas. Through its programs and partnerships, the Foundation works to maximize the benefits of modern ophthalmology and to treat thousands of patients in need each year.

Description

More than 85 million people are visually impaired worldwide. Globally, cataracts are the second leading cause of visual impairment and the leading cause of preventable blindness in the developing world.

The ASCRS Foundation supports physician education and provides humanitarian cataract surgery in the United States and overseas. Through its programs and partnerships, the Foundation works to maximize the benefits of modern ophthalmology and to treat thousands of patients in need each year.

The Foundation's US-based charitable cataract surgery program serves financially vulnerable, uninsured Americans who cannot afford or access care. These members of our own communities often rely on others to complete daily tasks and if left untreated, risk debilitating vision loss. To date, Operation Sight has delivered more than 4,200 surgeries through a nationwide network of volunteer surgeons committed to caring for those with no other options.

The Foundation also seeks to address not just individual cases of cataract blindness, but to fight the root cause; the shortage of eye surgeons in the developing world. The solution is two-fold: create world-class medical centers where efficient doctors can establish a presence, like the Sinskey Eye Institute; and secondly to focus on education - raising the local standards for both patient care and physician training.
